Collecting Native Seeds to Support Beneficial Insects
Are you looking to enhance your landscape with native species to attract birds, butterflies, and other pollinators? Join us for a native plant walk and wild seed collection with professional native plant propagator and landscape designer Adam Kohl. As we explore Mass Audubons Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary we will identify and demonstrate seed collection from over a dozen native species that provide habitats for beneficial insects, pollinators and birds.
We will follow the collection walk with seed cleaning exercises and demonstrations. The group will learn how to clean, store and cold stratify seeds, emphasizing specific needs for different species. Adam will guide us in the best practices for conservation-minded wild seed collection.
