Volunteer! Seed Collecting in the Great Marsh
September 8, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Calling all volunteers! Shirley Heinze is hosting a volunteer session to collect seeds at The Great Marsh located in Beverly Shores.
The Great Marsh is a unique wetland habitat that helps purify water before it enters Lake Michigan, assisted in part by the specialized plants of the marsh. As part of our continuing restoration efforts to create a corridor of habitats for our native pollinators, we need your help in collecting seeds of several plant species.
- Protective waterproof knee-high boots or high-top hiking boots
- Long pants & Long sleeves
We will provide all the necessary equipment (gardening gloves, insect repellent, TecNu, and sunscreen)
Check out our last seed collecting event at the Great Marsh: Rattlesnake Manna Grass Seed Collecting
Thank you to all volunteers that lend a hand with our restoration efforts!
