Summary

From dam removal to agricultural land-repurposing, our state has big plans to restore thousands of acres of land to valuable wildlife habitat. But accomplishing these big goals starts with something very tiny– seeds! Join us to explore the science behind sourcing native plants in the wild, cultivating them at our farm, and designing seed mixes to create resilient plant communities. This talk will feature film photographs taken by one of our own seed collectors in the field this summer.
