Seed collection is a very time-consuming endeavor and we appreciate your interest in helping with this task. In 2023, we will dedicate each Thursday morning starting August 24 to seed collection with the Stewardship Director and other staff spending time collecting seeds from a plant of interest. We invite anyone to come join us on those days from 9am to 11am.

The Nature Institute will provide all materials needed for seed collection, but if you have a pair of garden gloves that you prefer you will want to bring them with you. Also be sure to bring a water bottle. Since you will be trekking off trail into tall plants, we suggest everyone wear long pants and close toed shoes. You may also choose to wear a long sleeve shirt and wide brimmed hat when we collect in the prairie.

We will give you one or two types of plants to collect seed from and make sure that you know exactly what you are looking for and how to collect those seeds. So even if you feel like your plant identification skills are rusty, we will get you trained before each session so that you feel confident collecting with us.
