El Dorado Nature Center annual native plant sale to follow COVID-19 guidelines

The Long Beach Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine is reimagining their annual California Native Plant Sale at El Dorado Nature Center (7550 E. Spring St.) to follow COVID-19 safety guidelines. Hundreds of beautiful and beneficial native plants will be offered in this year’s drive-through sale.

Patrons can expect an easy shopping experience:

  1. Download a plant order form from the City’s website or pick up a form at El Dorado Nature Center in advance.
  2. Drive through the designated order fulfillment line 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, November 3 through November 21.
  3. Staff will collect the completed order form and load the plants into the shopper’s vehicle.

Pre-orders are not available; and the items chosen on one’s plant order form is distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Payment (cash, checks or credit cards) will be collected at the time plants are received.

Proceeds from the California Native Plant Sale will benefit Friends of El Dorado Nature Center, an affiliate of the non-profit Partners of Parks, a group that works to cultivate respect, understanding and stewardship of the natural world.
