Native Plant Gardening - Agua Hedionda Discovery Center

The Discovery Center hosts a ¾ mile walking trail and a large native-species garden exhibit.  Both require consistent maintenance. Volunteer activities can include monitoring restored sites, removing invasive plant species, repairing minor erosion problems, trimming overgrown vegetation and other general maintenance.  Your volunteer efforts will support a safe outdoor learning environment for field trips and help protect our native plant species.
