I recently starting volunteering with PVPLC. What a wonderful experience it has been. I have recently been accepted to the Native Garden internship program. I want to learn more about plants that are native to this area. And i already have!

The staff are very knowledgeable and approachable. They care about the space and love to share it with others.

There are many exhibits inside the building at the white point nature preserve. They appeal to a wide range of ages and knowledge
The outdoor garden is an oasis of paths leading through a variety of native plants.

There is no parking or entrance fee. It is an enjoyable way to experience an undeveloped Southern California landscape.

I got interested in the PVPLC when they helped restore an abandoned 100 acre parcel at White Point Nature Preserve, just a few blocks from my house. They provide amazing opportunities for me as a volunteer. I got to remove invasive weeds, plant native plants in their place, and watch them grow. Now there are more birds, more flowers and more trails. My involvement led to board membership and deeper involvement in my community. This was more than 10 years ago and I can't imagine a world without open space and all it has to offer. It is a way for me to make a difference in my quality of life and the quality of my neighborhood. So much of climate change is scary and negative, and this organization offers such a positive alternative!
