Want to have fun while giving back to nature? Then please join the Irvine Ranch Conservancy at our Native Seed Farm! These weekly stewardship activities take place on most Wednesdays and Saturdays year-round. The plants you help grow on the Farm are selected by our ecologists to support natural diversity and ecosystem resilience. Many provide food and shelter for rare, native species like the Coastal Cactus Wren and the Quino Checkerspot Butterfly. The seeds and plants we work with will be used to restore habitats within the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks.
You will participate in a variety of activities that change with the seasons. These may include soil preparation, planting, harvesting, weed removal, and much more. Work is on relatively level ground but may require some bending, stooping, kneeling or crouching, and use of fine motor skills. Tools, gloves, and training are provided. No experience is needed!
Reviewing the 1-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this Level-2 activity.
Registration will open again at a later date dependent on State and County regulations and to minimize the impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19). Please check back for updates. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Registration is closed for this activity.
