Seed collection is a very relaxing activity; some even say it's therapeutic. It's also a great family activity!

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. All of the projects are 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.
