Willow Springs Native Plant Nursery

Our native plant nursery is located at Willow Springs Park in Long Beach. The nursery grows a variety of California coastal sage scrub plants to support our efforts to restore native habitat in the restoration area. We are also working towards growing native plants for sale to supply our local gardens and residential landscaping. By growing native plants, you provide habitat for local wildlife, birds, butterflies and other beneficial pollinators. Native plants are best adapted to local climate as well as climate change and they save water in landscaping. Together as a community we can make efforts to protect local wildlife and grow native plants.

Join us at a Native Plant Workshop to learn more and participate in 90 minutes of volunteering in the habitat restoration area after each workshop. Parking is available at 2710 California Avenue next to the Farm Lot 59 Farm Stand. Overflow parking is available on the other side of the park at 2755 Orange Avenue. View the map and instructions on how to find us.
