Return of the Natives

The good news is that native plant species of Monterey County make for diverse, lovely scenery, with blooms that last for many months from spring through fall, and offer habitat to a range of critters, including pollinators. The bad news is that native species need our help. Enter nonprofit Return of the Natives, and an opportunity to join in a volunteer effort to get happy, healthy, native plants into the ground. These recurring volunteer gatherings are a chance to get into various parks and open spaces in Monterey County, get a little exercise and help restore diversity to local landscapes.
