We'll work from 8:30 - 11:30 am. <br> <br>At the nursery, we do a variety of tasks including: propagating, potting up, seeding, weeding, trimming, organizing, watering, and otherwise caring for native plants that will be used on habitat improvement projects. <br> <br>Nursery events are held at CALFIRE's Lewis Moran Reforestation Facility at 5800 Chiles Road in Davis.

All plants are propagated, transplanted, weeded, and otherwise cared for by community volunteers - just like you! <br> <br>Why are we growing the plants? <br> <br>During the rainy season, December - April, plants from the nursery will be planted along Putah Creek and regional projects in hedgerows or mass plantings to create wildlife habitat, attract pollinators beneficial to agriculture, and improve water quality by preventing erosion and illegal vehicle trespass.&nbsp;&nbsp;(Posted by <a title="Users/putahcreek" class="nonexistent" href="http://daviswiki.org/Users/putahcreek">putahcreek</a>)
