"From meditative seed cleaning sessions to digging, planting and watering our new 'babies' or simply walking through the park when seed collecting, there's never a dull moment with the greenhouse crew. And it's very rewarding to know our hard work helps make a better home for the wild residents of the park.” – Greenhouse VIP Patricia
Every week, Greenhouse & Landscaping volunteers care for the park’s natural plant life. Throughout Cabrillo National Monument, you can find these volunteers collecting and labeling seeds from various native vegetation to be taken back to the park’s greenhouse. There, these seeds are cleaned, planted, and nurtured until they are ready to be transported into the park. Once replanted, they are then regularly watered and cared for.
