* Seed Collection Hikes are a great way to learn about California native plants and the important role they play in our restoration events. All seed that is collected is then propagated in our native plant nursery by our amazing volunteer team. Once these seeds develop into seedlings and plants we utilize them within the Lagunitas Creek watershed to restore vital habitat. Meeting places vary but the events meet at 10 am and generally run to around 2pm. 

** Work Parties are a fun way to get involved in the labor needed to restore habitat vital to species like the endangered Coho salmon. These activities are at variable sites within the Lagunitas Creek watershed that can require some small adaptations so we encourage participants interested to RSVP and ask as many questions as you need. Meeting places vary but the events meet at 10 am and generally run to around 2pm.
