The Alhambra Native Plant Trail

Visit the gardens created by volunteers from Friends of Alhambra Creek, California Native Plant Society & New Leaf Academy to get ideas for your very own California Native Garden at home!
Our goal is not only to educate residents about our native flora, but also to create a wildlife corridor throughout Martinez for birds, butterflies, bees, and other beneficial insects.
