Stewardship Volunteers- Seed Collecting

Meet at the Whitford Lake parking area. Meeting location: 42°18'40.7"N 85°21'37.9"W

Your help is needed to gather seed from native forbs and grasses!  This is a great activity for families, students and others to learn about native species while taking part in the restoration process!  All collected seed will be used in our on-going restoration efforts. No experience in plant identification or collection is necessary to enjoy this fun event!
