Native Seed Garden Seed Collection

Saturday, July 31, 9 a.m.-noon
Longmont
Come spend a beautiful morning with us hanging out in the garden, collecting and learning about the seed we grow there, and giving a little extra love to our public lands. If we have extra time and will, there are several other projects in the garden that we can work on, as well. It’s a beautiful place to spend time!

Registration required.

Fire Followers Bioblitz

Sunday, Aug. 15, 9 a.m.-noon
Sunday, Sept. 12, 9 a.m.-noon
Sunday, Oct. 3, 9 a.m.-noon

In partnership with the Lefthand Watershed Center and The Cal-Wood Education Center, Boulder County will be exploring in the footprint of the Cal-Wood fire, the largest wildfire in Boulder County history. As a group, we will walk the landscape and observe the plants that are already starting to return in the wake of the burn. Using a smartphone app we will take photos of the plants we see and identify any we can. Our photos will be contributed to a database to help us better understand how our lands rebound after a fire.
What you should know about this event:
  • We will be hiking on uneven terrain. Sturdy, closed-toe shoes are required.
  • Some safety gear may be required, but all will be provided.
  • The use of your smartphone is highly encouraged, as we will be using an app to take pictures and record the vegetation we find.
  • All COVID safety protocols will be observed for the duration of the project
Registration required.
