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!

This is a volunteer opportunity.
