Native Plants

Big leaf maple seedling getting it’s start at the nursery.

The MRC has been cultivating native grasses, trees, shrubs and forbs for over a decade. All seed is collected locally from the Mattole Watershed and our two native seed farms. For more information about our native plant nursery, please visit our Native Plant Materials page.

We provide both seed and plants for restoration projects and private landowners. If you are interested in learning more about native plants, we would love for you to join us for one of our Native Plant Nursery volunteer days. You can find out when the next one will be on our events page!

To purchase any seeds from the Native Plant Nursery you can visit the Watershed Wares page or find out more about currently available plants or seed, please contact our nursery manager, Veronica, at 707-629-3514 or Currently, only some of our total inventory is available online.
