One-time Opportunities

Native Seed Cleaning

Thursday, March 5, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Ron Stewart Parks & Open Space Building, 5201 St. Vrain Road, Longmont
Using native, hand collected seed is an incredibly valuable tool in Boulder County's restoration efforts. Sometimes though, that hand collected seed needs a little processing so we can store and use it efficiently and effectively! Using a combination of screens, bowls, and good ole elbow grease we can get this done together! Good people, good seed, good conversations, good fun!

Registration required.
