Help Tend the Native Plant Landscape in Old Town State Park

  • Old Town Historical State Park 4002 Wallace Street San Diego, CA, 92110 United States (map)

The ten-year-old Old Town Native Plant Landscape supports trees, shrubs, annuals, and perennials that lived in this coastal region when Europeans arrived in 1769. Most of the species of plants are useful for humans, as well as native wildlife.


In March the care for the Old Town Landscape includes some light arborist work, reducing foliage on brancht ips to prevent tree branches from breaking. We also do some careful weeding around herbaceous annuals, cacti, and shrubby plants.

We have found techniques that work, and we’ll be glad to teach you, if you volunteer to help us do the work!


The Native Plant Landscape is located at the far west end of Old Town, where Taylor and Congress Streets meet, across from the Trolley/Bus/Train depot. Park in the lot at the corner of Calhoun and Taylor Streets. Bring water or other favorite hydration and have sun protection. Bring garden gloves and your favorite weeding tools or share ours.

After we finish our tasks, whoever wants to will go to a local restaurant for no-host lunch and socializing.
