Mark your calendar for the next Chicago Living Corridors webinar, Thursday, August 24, 2023 at 7pm. Luke Dahlberg, Seed Technician for Citizens for Conservation will present on a topic of interest for native plant gardeners and stewards:
Reaping the Harvest: Techniques on Collecting, Processing, and Storing Native Seed.
As growing interest continues in ecosystem restoration and native plant landscaping, many of us would like to utilize the seeds of our native plants for restoration and propagation. However, with so many native plant species, they all have different characteristics for their harvesting and storage. This talk will give you basic information on seed collecting, cleaning and storage to help you get the most out of your native seeds.
