Get Involved!

Help grow CNPS and support our mission to protect, conserve and enjoy California’s native plants and their habitats! Our chapter is entirely volunteer-run, so there are lots of opportunities to get involved. The Napa Valley chapter of the CNPS needs you!

We have a number of volunteer opportunities to suit your schedule and interests.

Volunteer Opportunities

Martha Walker Native Habitat Garden Steward

Meet other local gardening enthusiasts and learn to propagate and cultivate California native plants. Volunteers help with upkeep for the Martha Walker Native Plant Garden and the Skyline Nursery, where we grow native plants for the garden, our twice-yearly plant sales and other restoration projects.

A weekly work group meets every Wednesday morning from 9 a.m. to noon at the Garden in Skyline Park, 2201 Imola Avenue in Napa. No experience or native plant knowledge required – you will learn by doing.  No need to contact us first; just show up with water, a hat, and gloves.  We have the tools you need.  It is a fun group, and the Garden will thank you. (Rain cancels.)

Special one day garden projects can be arranged for work groups, scouts or anyone interested. To coordinate a custom work day, contact our volunteer coordinator at volunteer@napavalleycnps.org.

CNPS Natural Science Docent Program

Become a docent and share your love of plants with the next generation! Napa CNPS docents take 3rd to 5th graders out of the classroom and into the Martha Walker Native Habitat Garden. Students receive education on plants, birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, spiders and insects in the Napa Watershed all while exploring the Garden and hiking Skyline Wilderness Park.

For further information and to sign up, contact us at volunteer@napavalleycnps.org.

Plant Sale Volunteers

We are always recruiting volunteers to help with the Spring and Fall Plant Sales.  Learn about the different plant communities and the plants that grow within them. You will learn this and more by volunteering at the Sale. Volunteers help organize plants before and during the sale and help attendees with the plants they want to purchase. You do not need to be a native plant expert to help!

To sign up, contact Sandie Hewitt: volunteer@napavalleycnps.org or (707) 815-0771.
