Join in efforts to restore native habitat in the Golden Gate National Parks. The Tennessee Valley Nursery grows plants for over a dozen restoration sites in the park from Olema to the Marin Headlands. Our dedicated volunteers also help improve habitat by removing invasive plants from our restoration sites. As a volunteer, you will learn about local native species and the importance of restoration ecology. Activities include invasive plant removal, winter planting, transplanting seedlings, pruning, and seed collection.
