Seed Cleaning Social Indoor Volunteer Event

Indoor Volunteer seed cleaning social Al Leach Cleaning seeds at Meadowbrook nature preserve in order to restore wetland habitat. Cheers to our volunteers who spend their time helping the community

On Monday December 12th we will be having a Seed Cleaning Social from 9pm-12pm. Volunteers will be INDOORS with our staff as we clean native seeds that will be distributed at a Shirley Heinze Preserve! As you can imagine, native plants are vital to the health and long-term viability of an ecosystem. That’s why our stewardship team takes great care to cultivate native species and remove invasive ones (to allow the natives to thrive). And that’s how you can help us!

 

By participating in our seed cleaning social , you assist Shirley Heinze by removing the chaff and other plant material off the seed bodies in order to improve seed distribution and germination rates. Let’s prep these vital native seeds!

 

Shirley Heinze will provide all necessary material and gear for the volunteers (we will host the seed cleanings indoors at the Meadowbrook office). We’d recommend bringing a reusable water bottle along.
