Native Harvest Seed Collection and Dispersal

Overview
Additional Information

Seeds and fruits of native plants come in a wide assortment of sizes and shapes, reflecting a variety of dispersal mechanisms. Discover the beauty and functionality of these nuggets of nature that hold the promise of future plant communities.

We’ll begin with a classroom presentation before taking to the field for a seed-collection exercise, followed by a demonstration and discussion at our nearby seed-processing facility. Dress appropriately to be outdoors and be prepared to be off trail on uneven terrain.

This is a free program for all ages, but space is limited, so please register in advance:  http://www.seversondells.com/events/seedcollectiondispersal or call 815-335-2915.
