Come out and learn how to collect native seed species from a restored meadow site.
Have you ever wanted to learn how native seed is collected? How it’s cleaned before use? What are sustainable harvesting practices?
Come and join the Canadian Wildlife Federation and Morgan’s Grant Community Association at the pollinator meadow on Saturday Sept 17th. This event is open to the public.
Join Stefan Weber, an experienced botanist and restoration ecologist who will teach us as we wander around and identify native plants that have gone to seed, learn how to collect seed, and some basic techniques around cleaning native seed. There may be some opportunity to take some seed home.
Two sessions being offered to allow for smaller groups of 20 people. First group: 1:30- 2:30 pm and 3:00-4:00 pm. Please select one time slot.
