Collecting Native Plant Seeds

Date: Monday, October 10th, 2011 Time: 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm Location: Univ of IL Extension Building, Daniel T. Kelley Auditorium (map and directions)

As part of their stewardship responsibilities, Al and Mary collect native seed used to overseed and restore natural areas of Nachusa Grasslands in northern Illinois. They will share their knowledge and experience on how to collect, clean, and store seed as well as some thoughts on when and where to collect seeds from native plants. Plan to attend this session to learn how to collect seed this fall that you can share at the November seed exchange. Presented by Al and Mary Meier, Nachusa Grasslands Stewards, Nature Conservancy
