Boulder County Seed Collection VI

SCHEDULED

Easy    ●    Morning    ●    Family Friendly   ●    Minimum Age: 8, with adult supervision (more info)
Date(s):
Friday Sep 14, 2018 - Number of Volunteers: 30
THIS IS A MORNING 8:30am-12:30pm 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 Boulder 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.

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.

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.

Join us on this collaborative project to collect tallgrass species south of Boulder with both the City of Longmont and the City of Boulder! 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 one or both of the following tallgrass species: yellow indiangrass and switchgrass.

Our collected seeds will be used in local habitat restoration projects in the City of Longmont along the St. Vrain creek.

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, very likely south Boulder. Once you register, you'll receive info 2-3 days prior about the location, directions and species you'll be collecting.
