Seed Squad Drop-In Events

Who: Individuals or small groups. All ages are welcome, but may be best suited for ages 10 and up. Must be able to navigate uneven terrain. 

What: Harvest native seed from some of our highest quality natural areas. The collected seed will later be sown and/or propagated and planted to increase diversity for wildlife and pollinators.
