Come plant with us this weekend! Native plants are essential to the health of the Bay, and the best time to plant them is after the first rain when the soil is loose. They’ve been waiting in our nursery and now they’re ready to brave the shoreline. You’ll be part of the largest wetland restoration project on the West Coast.
