Grow Coast Live Oaks

Coast live oaks (Quercus agrifolia) are the number one plant you can help us grow! Local acorns work best and can be gathered throughout the valley. We are nearing the end of the acorn harvest, but there is an ongoing need for help to process, grow, and plant the oaks over the next 14 months.
