The Native Plant Garden at Rose Creek in Pacific Beach was started in the mid-1990s by The Nature School. Since 2004 the Friends of Rose Creek have managed and expanded the garden. We are seeking a new “coordinator” to:
- water newly planted native plants as needed
- trim and remove non-native invasive species
- expand the native plant garden by preparing the area, obtaining plants, and installing plants.
- partner with volunteers and community groups to managed the garden.
Time commitment: four to ten hours per month. You don’t need to do all the work yourself but you will need to make sure the work gets done!
Required Qualifications: demonstrated teamwork skills such as getting along well with others, respecting others’ physical abilities and contributions, and helping/offering assistance to volunteers at all times. Basic understanding of hydration and tool safety protocols; ability to identify and consider creative, practical ideas to improve work efficiencies (i.e., adaptive management, problem-solving, and “thinking on your feet”); willingness to learn about non-native and native plants; and must be able to conduct field work including standing/hiking for two to three hours at a time.
This is a volunteer opportunity.
