Seed Collection 101


Are you a lover of nature with a basic knowl­edge of woody plant ID? Are you look­ing for a way to help a greater cause while enjoy­ing the great out­doors? Please join our expe­ri­enced nurs­ery staff for this foun­da­tion­al train­ing in seed col­lec­tion, the first step in prop­a­gat­ing your own trees and shrubs, focus­ing on fall-ripen­ing fruits and nuts.

You’ll learn basic seed biol­o­gy, tree/ shrub species iden­ti­fi­ca­tion tips, fruit­ing times, signs of ripen­ing to watch for, respon­si­ble col­lec­tion, and prop­er stor­age meth­ods. Some of the mate­r­i­al will be cov­ered indoors, and weath­er per­mit­ting, we’ll explore the wood­ies out­side, in the cam­pus landscape.

This event is suit­able for adults and chil­dren 16+ years old.
