Weds. September 29 – Native Seed Collecting & Project Wingspan. 7 pm
Free Zoom presentation presented by Riya Milan, UMD Student Sustainability Assistant. The public is welcome.
The Pollinator Partnership started this project in order to increase the quality, abundance, and connectivity of pollinator habitat across the Midwest to support imperiled native pollinators such as the rusty patched bumble bee and the monarch butterfly. This work is done through a network of seed collector volunteers that will collect and distribute regionally appropriate native wildflower seeds in our area. Riya will also be discussing seed saving techniques.
