Native seeds are the bee’s knees! Using native seeds in re-vegetation efforts is essential to restoring native plant diversity and food webs, and creating resiliency in our special ecosystem. However often times, native seed is not available commercially – they are too expensive, or the available seeds are not ecologically appropriate. This is where you come in! Volunteers help our restoration efforts by hand-collecting a variety of species, including grasses, wildflowers and others over the course of the summer and fall. Staff monitors seed development ahead of our scheduled project, at a variety of open space areas, so the exact location of our project will be determined within a week of our project date.
Registration is required through Discover Boulder County, Parks & Open Space’s volunteer and event registration system. If you’re new to the system, you’ll need to create an account. But it’s easy and we only use your contact information to communicate about events you register for. We will never sell or give your information to a third party.
