Channel Islands Restoration currently has hundreds of plants native to Ventura County available for sale.

Our Story: In 2017, Channel Islands Restoration gathered native seeds from many Ventura County watersheds including the Ventura River Watershed, the Santa Clara River Watershed, the Santa Monica Mountains, and others. With every seed collection we recorded the exact location so that genetic integrity would be ensured. This way we can provide you plants whose seeds were collected in your watershed.

Little did we know that the Thomas Fire would burn many of the mountain sides and other areas so soon after we’d collected the seeds. Since then, we have propagated these seeds in our native plant nursery in Camarillo (pictured above). We are now excited to make them available for sale for native habitat restoration to public agencies and to private landowners.

We currently have six species ready for sale and more on the way. We can also grow other species and fulfill custom orders at your request. The list of species is found below.

Our difference:

Channel Islands Restoration is committed to restoring our native habitat and preserving genetic diversity. Each batch of seeds has specific coordinates for their collection sites, allowing for hyper-local targeted restoration.

Channel Islands Restoration has over 18 years of habitat restoration experience and has collected seeds, grown, and planted over 50,000 native plants. We currently manage native plant nurseries in Camarillo, Summerland, and on San Nicolas Island.
