Seed Blitz: Vesper Meadow

August 3 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Volunteer opportunity. Join us as we hand-harvest native seed to be used in future restoration work.  This event will be taking place at the beautiful (and 10 degrees cooler) Vesper Meadow!

Explore this fascinating place with Vesper Meadow's expert staff, learn how to ID and collect seed from native plants, and contribute to projects that will support the next generations of bees, butterflies, birds and other wildlife. (And there's a good chance we'll be able to get a close-up view of some of the pollinators!)
