Please join the new IRC Plant Materials program at our native seed farm and plant nursery located in Orchard Hills every Wednesday from 9am to 12pm. During this weekly Stewardship program you will learn about the plants native to this region and join us in a variety of activities. Activities change with the seasons and may include planting, harvesting, invasive plant management, native plant propagation, seed processing, and much more. All of the seeds and plants we work with will be used to restore habitat within the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks. Work will be easy to moderate. We look forward to your support in helping Irvine Ranch Conservancy restore our beautiful California wilderness. We recommend 12 years and older please. All minors MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
