About this Event

Native Plant Seed Production at St. Williams Nursery with Stephan Weber on Saturday, August 17th 2019 (10:00am)

This trip is a bit different than our usual outings. We will be visiting the seed orchards of St. Williams Nursery, where we will learn about commercial scale seed production for restoration and landscaping. The seed orchards are fields with blocks of parent plants for the harvest of large quantities of seed. As these are very large fields, we will discuss with interested attendees on preference for walking, carpooling, or cycling between fields – cycling would require attendees to b.y.o.-bike. On this trip, we will learn about the importance and process of native seed production, from seed collection and forecasting, to harvest, cleaning, and germination. The timing of our visit should allow us to see many late summer flowering species including asters and goldenrods blooming in large arrays.

Note: For those that register through Eventbrite, we have allowed for a refund period of up to 7 days before the trip. That means you may still sign up for trips ahead of time even if you aren’t sure of your plans, and as long as you request a refund through Eventbrite before that time, you will receive a full refund. Cancelling your Eventbrite ticket also allows us to open your spot on the trip to people on the wait list. If an event is listed as SOLD OUT, you can still put yourself on the wait list, and if someone else gives up their spot, we will contact the waitlist to offer the spot(s). As always, you will need to sign the trip waiver, which from now on will be provided by the trip rep at the start of every trip.
