The Irvine Ranch Conservancy Seed Farm will be one of more than 2,000 sites participating in National Public Lands Day on Saturday, September 29. This is the largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands in the United States, with more than 170,000 volunteers expected to chip in across the country.
In parks, public and community gardens, beaches, wildlife preserves or forests, volunteers will give back to their local open spaces by participating in projects such as restoration, cleanup, maintenance and food harvesting. On the Native Seed Farm, volunteers will harvest seeds that will be used in restoration projects across the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks. Their work will directly promote sustainable habitats within Orange County's only National Natural Landmark.
