A group transplants coyote brush.

When: Saturdays, 9 am–Noon

Where: Marin Headlands Nursery

Come grow with us! Perched above Rodeo Lagoon, the Marin Headlands Nursery immerses volunteers in the beauty of the park as we ensure that each plant gets the care it needs to thrive.

Depending on the week and season, volunteers may be transplanting seedlings, pruning plants, processing seeds for the next growing season, maintaining the facility, or doing other fun outdoor activities.

Join us to help grow our national park!
