Our native plant nursery houses plants to be used in the park for plant replacement and on-going landscaping projects. We need both skilled and unskilled gardeners to pot, weed, transplant, re-plant, and care for the plants in the nursery.

What grows in the park?

In 1996, Friends members Lisa and Ed Keppner documented approximately 340 plant species in the park with only four of them non-native. 
There are several ecosystems in the park but the primary one is Coastal. The plants most important to maintaining the integrity of the park ecosystems include the Sea Oats and other grasses on the beach. Lisa says the several species of oaks are also important for all the food they provide - not just acorns, but the many insects that live on the oaks provide food for the birds.
