Volunteer! Seed Gathering in the Great Marsh

September 21 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Free

Seed Gathering in the Great MarshNative plants are ready for their seeds to gather, we used hand pruners, gloves, and giant bags to clip and collect the seeds at Beverly Shores project area

Calling on Beverly Shores volunteers to join our seed gathering event from several plant types at Beverly Shores Project Area! The purpose of seed gathering in the Great Marsh ties in with our restoration efforts that creates a corridor of habitats for our native pollinators. Which is the backyard of those who live in Beverly Shores! Plus this is also great opportunity to spend a few hours soaking up Vitamin D (nature’s medicine).

Drop-in on Wednesday, September 21st between 11am-1pm. During this time, you’ll get to experience The Great Marsh’s unique wetland habitat that helps purify water before it enters Lake Michigan.

 

We will meet at the intersection of Beverly Drive and Wells RoadParking will be available on the south side of Beverly Drive.
Please feel free to stay as little or long as you’d like! We will provide all the necessary equipment, water, and snacks during this time!
Due to the wet terrain with tall grasses we ask that you dress in long pants, long sleeves, and tall boots.

 

Please RSVP Below! There is a max of 10 volunteers.
