Seed Bag Sewing I

COMPLETED

Easy    ●    Full Day    ●    Minimum Age: 12, with adult supervision * (more info)
Date(s):
Friday Jan 11, 2019 - Number of Volunteers: 5
WRV is collaborating with Boulder County Parks and Open Space to bring our sewing tools and skills together to make a new group of seed collection bags! Many of the bags will stay with Boulder County, including new, smaller bags for KIDS! Others will live up in Fort Collins to support their growing network of seed collectors.

This project is 9am-3pm on January 11th, the exact location and more details will be provided to those who register. If we don't finish the work on the 11th, we may invite you to join us on the 25th for more sewing.

In the comments section please note whether you have sewing experience, and whether you can bring a sewing machine. Neither is required, but would be helpful.

Thanks for your continued support of the Native Seed Program, even in the dreary winter months!


*Children under 18 must be accompanied by an authorized adult whose primary responsibility is their supervision.

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. You will work in small groups led by an experienced crew leader. All supplies will be provided by WRV and the partner agency. Work will include hiking, sitting, squatting, standing, and bending. 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!

This project is in Boulder County. The exact 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. Local botanists visit many sites and closely follow the seed development of many species--we appreciate your patience! 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 would like to serve as a Crew Leader or Greeter please write your intentions in the "Notes" section when registering.

Calling all families with kids ages 5-18! We welcome YOU to this Family Friendly seed collection project!

Though most WRV projects are best for older youth, this event will be an opportunity for younger kids and their caregivers to join a seed collection and learn about native seeds! WRV staff and volunteers will provide activities for kids to participate in while their adults collect seeds. Kids will also be welcome to join their parents and collect seed in a safe environment. As parents ourselves, we know it's challenging to find family-friendly volunteer events, but this is meant to make giving back as a family as easy as possible! Please reach out if you have specific questions. (erica@wlrv.org)

When registering, please list the number of kids and ages in the comments sections. All youth under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Breakfast snacks and lunch will be provided, and a port-a-potty will be on site.
