Chesapeake Natives is a volunteer-driven nonprofit dedicated to promoting, protecting, and propagating plants native to the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. We provide opportunities for volunteers of all ages. Whether you are a gardening enthusiast or have limited knowledge on plants, you are welcome to volunteer.

The plants you help grow will be sold to the community during our Open house sales. All proceeds go directly to support our program! Special skills are welcome but certainly not required.

Currently our volunteer hours are:
Monday-Friday 10:00 AM – 3:00PM

If you are interested in volunteering with us please contact volunteer@chesapeakenatives.org
