Native Plant Nursery

NATIVE PLANT NURSERY

Want to learn how to grow plants? Looking for new experience for your resume? In this program, you’ll learn about plants native to coastal British Columbia and how they support birds and pollinators. Working in EYA’s plant nursery and greenhouse, you’ll gain horticultural skills that can help you get a job, including native plant care, soils, propagation, seed-saving, and environmental stewardship. We will also take field trips to Still Creek where we’ll help restore habitat for salmon, birds, and other wildlife. You’ll also meet new friends, grow your leadership skills, and earn money while you’re at it! 

 

This program is open to all youth age 14-18.
Lunch is provided & bus tickets are available upon request.
