Join us Saturday, February 24 for our annual OCCNPS Membership Day at Tree of Life Nursery and the TOLN Spring Plant Sale.

Theme: Inspiring the Next Generation

  • 10:00 am – Tony Tubbs, Educator, Photographer, Habitat restorationist

Tony Tubbs will bring us highlights of his 10-year project inspiring and educating students, while restoring functional habitat at Tesoro High School in Capistrano Unified School district. Their program for environmental education is a model for all of California and we are fortunate to have Tony and his students so close to home.

Aside from attracting endangered songbirds and riparian species into the created habitat on graded land formerly composed of exotic weeds, Tony’s classes have noted (on trail cams and his own photography) numerous species including all the local megafauna species visiting their plantings.

The gardens are organized around ecological and cultural themes. CNPS/OC has provided numerous funding grants over the years.

Tony’s superb photography of plants, animals, birds, and invertebrates, as well as his dedicated students will illustrate his talk. Don’t miss this inspiring presentation. The successes attained at Tesoro HS, in the plantings and in the lives of everyone involved, are truly achievements to be celebrated.

11:45 am –  Questions, Answers, Group Discussion. How to inspire the next generation of conservationists and native plant enthusiasts?

Stop by the nursery, grab a few of those native plants you’ve been hankering for and say hello to friends. Bring family and friends and introduce them to Orange County’s largest selection of native plants.
