City of Boulder Seed Collection I - Crew Leader Field Day

This will be our first seed collection of the season and all volunteers are welcome! New Seed Collection Crew Leaders will work with experienced crew leaders and practice their skills on a seed collection! This is a very relaxing activity; some even say it's therapeutic. It's also a great family activity!

THIS IS A MORNING 9:00am-12:00PM EVENT -- Using native seeds in re-vegetation efforts is essential to restoring native plant diversity. Often times, however, native seeds are not available commercially, they are too expensive, or the available seeds are not ecologically appropriate.

LOCATION TO BE DETERMINED!

The location of seed collections can only be determined 2-3 days prior to each event, given the varying growth rates of the many species we collect. This project is in Boulder County. Once you register, you'll receive info 2-3 days prior about the location, directions and species you'll be collecting.

Volunteers will help increase the availability of native seed by hand collecting a variety of species, including mostly grasses, sedges, and some wildflowers and other forbs. Local botanists will be working on site and will provide identification of wildflowers and other native plants during the project.

The seeds you collect will be grown out to increase them 100 or 1000 fold, vastly increasing the amount of locally-adapted seed that is available for local restoration projects.

Fort Collins Evening Berry Cleaning

COMPLETED

Date(s):
Friday Aug 03, 2018 - Number of Volunteers: 10
Recently, a few dedicated volunteers braved 100 degree heat, poison ivy and some intense bushwhacking to collect a very good stock of native chokecherry and golden and black currant seeds to be used in restoration along the Front Range. See the picture below!

Now we need your help to make a giant mess by mashing the berries and washing these seeds to get all that delicious pulp off the outsides. So bust out those stained painting clothes and join us for a Happy Hour Seed Collection on Friday August 3rd from 5-7pm. We will meet at WRV's Fort Collins office and enjoy a beautiful summer evening of great friends, some music and refreshments and of course, berry mashing!

Native seed is often incredibly expensive or unavailable commercially, making habitat restoration challenging. By collecting native species that are adapted to thrive in the challenging climate of the Front Range, WRV volunteers provide this essential resource to future restoration projects and our public lands.

Have you ever wondered what happens with all that seed we collect on our projects? By joining us for this seed cleaning, you can learn how seeds are stored, cleaned and how and where these seeds will be used in restoration projects in the future.

This is a morning 8:00AM-11:00am event

All volunteers will receive a free park pass for the day!

WRV is excited to announce that we are partnering with Colorado Parks and Wildlife at Lory State Park for another year of Native seed collections. This is the 3rd seed collection event this season and we will be focusing on collecting American Plum, or Prunus virginiana...assuming it ripens on time! This season we are focusing on fruiting shrubs that grow along the Front Range and collected Chokecherry, Sumac and Currants in July.

These plants provide incredible wildlife habitat by providing cover, shade and nesting habitat for small rodens and birdlife, as well as abundant forage for ungulates, birds, rodents and larger animals like bear, coyote, fox and more! The seeds from this project will be used to restore native plant communities in the The City of Longmont and WRV is grateful for this unique partnership to help promote native plants in City Natural Areas.

Often times, however, native seeds are not available commercially, they are too expensive, or the available seeds are not ecologically appropriate. Volunteers will help increase the availability of native seed by hand collecting a variety of species.

Once you register, you'll receive info 3-5 days prior about the exact trail head location, directions and species you'll be collecting. Volunteers should plan to meet in Lory State Park a few minutes before 8am, about 20 minutes from downtown Fort Collins.

We look forward to seeing you!

Join us to clean wild plum seeds collected by volunteers at Lory State Park this summer!

Cleaning plum seeds entails removing the fleshy part of the fruit from the pit inside, and it can sometimes be messy so wear clothes that can get dirty/sticky/stained. This important work helps prepare the for storage and planting. These particular seeds will be grown out into containers and planted along the St Vrain Creek in Longmont!

This 2 HOUR EVENT (3-5pm) will be held at WRV's Boulder office.

Monday Nov 05, 2018 - Number of Volunteers: 12
THIS IS AN AFTERNOON 1-4PM EVENT

Using native seeds in re-vegetation efforts is essential to restoring native plant diversity. Some native species are not available commercially, are too expensive, or the available seeds are not ecologically appropriate.

Volunteers will help ensure the success of future restoration projects by hand-collecting seeds from a variety of native species, including grasses, wildflowers, and shrubs. Local botanists will be working on site and will provide identification of wildflowers and other native plants during the project.

Our collected seeds will be used in local habitat restoration projects, or may be grown out in an agricultural setting to increase them 100 or 1000 fold, vastly increasing the amount of locally-adapted seed that is available for local restoration projects.

LOCATION TO BE DETERMINED!

The location of seed collections can only be determined 2-3 days prior to each event, given the varying growth rates of the many species we collect. This project is in Jefferson County. Once you register, you'll receive info 2-3 days prior about the location, directions and species you'll be collecting.


*If you are trained and certified, and would like to serve as a Crew Leader or Greeter please write your intentions in the "Notes" section when registering.
**Children under 18 must be accompanied by an authorized adult whose primary responsibility is their supervision.
