Saturdays in the Soil for MLK Day of Service

Join us on this special gardening day for 2019 MLK Day of Service and help the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History keep our Garden Learning Center thriving! We have worked hard to transform our surrounding grounds from a creekside jungle of invasive ivy, blackberry, and mattress wire vine into a pollinator and California native plant haven -- and there is always more work to be done!

As a garden volunteer, you will help us with general landscaping, occasional watering, weeding, and replanting. You will also learn about sustainable gardening practices and California Native plants! All ages are welcome; children under 14 require adult supervision.

These volunteer garden days are held on the third Saturday of every month, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. 

We will garden in light rain, but will cancel in the case of a downpour. Volunteers should wear closed toe shoes, and bring gloves (if you have them), a reusable water bottle, and sun protection. Gardening gloves, tools, and water will be provided.
