Collecting, Saving, & Germinating Native Seeds - Bilingual Event
Tuesday, May 4, 2021 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm
Instead of buying seeds, you can collect and save your own! Watershed Management Group is teaming up with Borderlands Restoration Network to offer you a virtual, bilingual workshop on native seed collection.
Collect seeds to germinate in your own yard, or pass on seeds to friends and family. May is a great time to collect seeds from spring wildflowers. This class will focus on how to steward and protect our native Sonoran Desert and help native plants reclaim our urban landscapes.
This virtual class will be taught by, Cindy Hu, WMG’s Community & Youth Engagement Manager, Christian Aguilar, WMG Docent, Francesca Claverie, Native Plant Program Manager, and Perin McNelis, Assistant Native Plant Manager from Borderlands Restoration Network.
