Milkweed Pod Harvests @ Stone Nursery
September 1 @ 9:00 am - September 30 @ 12:00 pm
Milkweed is an essential plant for monarch butterflies, as well as many other pollinators. Rebuilding milkweed populations is only possible if we have the seed to do it with!
Our partners at the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the US Forest Service have several beds of milkweed plants producing seed pods at the J. Herbert Stone Nursery in Central Point. The pods need to be hand-collected, so volunteers are essential to this effort. We will harvest on Fridays starting September 1 through October 27, with more dates added as needed.
