We are beyond THRILLED to announce the Lower American River Native Plant Nursery at Camp Pollock is up and running! 460 plants are ready to take root in local yards and help support pollinators and other native species.
All plants are sold in 1-gallon pots for $10. Online order and pre-payment are required. This is not a fulltime staffed facility so no plant sales will take place in person or over the phone. We expect to sell out within a week.
Plants can be picked up ONLY during our scheduled pickup drive-through events on Sunday, April 10 and Saturday, April 16 from 10am-1pm at Camp Pollock.
More and more Californians are choosing to garden with native plants. Why? Native plants have a beauty unique to California, are climate conscious, and provide invaluable habitat for the butterflies, birds, and other wildlife that share our home. We are excited to announce that the Lower American River Native Plant Nursery at Camp Pollock is a proud partner of Bloom! California, meaning that we — along with 100+ other nurseries around the state — are committed to providing our community with native plants known for their easy care requirements, statewide success, and great habitat power.
The Native Nursery has been made possible through a SMUD Shine grant, several private donors, mentorship from volunteers at Sac Valley CNPS, and generous in-kind support from Teichert, Bob Slobe, and SVC’s dedicated docents and volunteers.
Visitors to Camp Pollock can soon check out over an acre of newly planted Bloom-inspired native plant demonstration areas and pick up a Bloom Passport to learn more about what plants will work best in their own yards. The Camp Pollock grounds are open every day from sunrise to sunset, but the nursery is not a fulltime staffed facility. Attend the open house event on June 11 to learn more about Bloom! California plants and see what’s new at Camp Pollock. Visit the nursery page to begin your native plant journey, or visit bloomcalifornia.org to learn more. Let’s get growing!
