Join our community and grow with us! The Fort Funston Nursery is a friendly and inclusive space where we welcome people of all backgrounds, skills, and abilities.

Surrounded by shifting sand dunes and beautiful native plants, the Fort Funston Nursery can grow 30,000 plants each year--all made possible by community members like you.

Volunteers at Fort Funston participate in a variety of activities, including transplanting, pruning, weeding, pot washing, seed collection and nursery maintenance.

Join us to help grow our national park!
