Thanks for your interest in the Lower American River Native Plant Nursery and Demonstration Gardens at Camp Pollock!

The Spring Sale ended in April. We have ~300 plants left and discussing a Summer closeout sale.

Volunteers are needed yearround to help with propagation and maintenance. Service days are usually the second Saturday of the month. Volunteers are also needed to help with both pickup days. View the calendar for more info and to RSVP to help.
