Native Plant Propagation – Autumn Seed Collection – Afternoon, November 17

Join us in improving biodiversity at rare and throughout the community by growing native plants! Opportunities throughout the year allow you to join activities such as seed collection, seed sowing, and eventually planting the native plants! All skill levels are welcome as staff will be on site to guide the hike, identify species and provide instructions on proper seed collection and sowing techniques. Necessary equipment will also be provided.

Fall Seed Collection + Potential Plant Backs (November 17): Similar to the spring and summer seed collection events, this time of year has another variety of seeds ready for collection. This event will again be a hike through the trails, seed collection, planting some native species if they are ready, and sowing some collected seeds.

Cost: This event is FREE
