Community Volunteer Work Party Events

February 18, Saturday– 9am-12pm: SensoryPalmetum, and Rhododendron Gardens

Bring a friend and a garden tool. When volunteering, receive a parking pass at the kiosk by telling the attendant you are with the Friends of the Gardens at Lake Merritt.

In the event of rain, meet behind the lathe house (the Vireya Display Garden) where we will plant cuttings under cover.
