Seed Blitz: Rogue River Preserve
September 7, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Volunteer opportunity: Join us as we hand-harvest native seed at the beautiful Rogue River Preserve! These seeds will be grown out and added to pollinator habitat projects to support bees, butterflies, birds and other wildlife. At this event will will be focusing on tarweed, or madia, an important late-season bloomer with a unique stickiness that allows this plant to stay green late in the summer. So bring a lunch and gardening gloves if you’d like to stay clean, come learn about native plant ecology, and enjoy the early-fall splendor with us and Southern Oregon Land Conservancy!
Directions to the site and other details will be emailed one week before the event.
Restrooms are not available at the site.
All experience levels and ages are welcome. Come prepared to walk in tall grass and up moderate hills. Be aware that poison oak may be plentiful at this site. Bring plenty of water, sun protection, sturdy shoes and gaiters (if you have them) to protect your ankles from poky seeds.
