We  love the Wildlife Refuges of San Diego County. We are unique in that we are a cooperating association for both the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the California State Parks, giving us a rich and diverse set of opportunities to make a difference in wildlife refuge issues. From managing and administering private donations, grants and other funds, to participating in events such as bird counts, Earth Day and many other hands on activities, our association has something for everyone.

Check our news page and calendar for the latest information and  upcoming events, you will find many opportunities to meet new friends and make a difference. Come join us in our cooperative efforts with the National Wildlife Refuge System and California State Parks to make refuges even better places for wildlife and for people.

RECON Native Plants is excited to announce that for our final plant sale of the cool season, we will be teaming up with the Garden Native Plant Tour, “Gardens of Growth and Legacy,” hosted by the California Native Plant Society San Diego Chapter. The tour will focus on gardens all around South Bay San Diego and our nursery will serve as a starting point (where you purchase a map) for the tour as well as a “Garden” on the tour…and we will have beautiful plants for sale! The tour runs from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM on Saturday and Sunday, April 1 and 2, 2017. Since the tour will be running both Saturday and Sunday, we have decided to keep the plant sale open both days as well! Speaking of tours, if you have ever wanted to know more about our unique growing process, we will be hosting two guided tours of the RECON Native Plants nursery facility. The first tour will be on Saturday, April 1 at 2 PM and the second tour will be on Sunday, April 2 at 10 AM. This is the ideal time of year to appreciate the beauty of California native plants, so it should make for a great weekend. Hope to see you there!
