Volunteer Events Calendar
2020 Seed Squad Events
Individuals or small groups. All ages are welcome, but may be best suited for ages 8 and up. Must be able to navigate uneven terrain.
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. Volunteers do not need to be present the entire time—come during any portion of the event that works for you but we ask that you pre-register each individual. Attend as many events as you would like and there’s no experience necessary.
