Native Seed Collection in Arcadia

  • This event has passed.


October 30, 2014
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Arcadia – Grassland and/or Marsh
Arcadia, MI United States


Nate Richardson

Restoration work at Arcadia Marsh and the Arcadia Grasslands continues and its time to harvest the native plant seeds. Please join us! 

Plan to meet at the Arcadia Dunes Grassland. The group will be collecting from either the grassland or the marsh depending on what’s in bloom and access. Harvesters will collect grass and wildflower seeds while learning about the restoration efforts at both locations. Angie Lucas will be leading the day and is a wealth of knowledge so you will no doubt learn about the birds and other plants you bump into as well! Fall is a beautiful time of the year to be at either location. 

Please wear comfortable shoes, a hat for the sun and bring water. This is not a dog friendly event. In the event of foul weather contact Angie (231.929.7911) to verify the status of the work day. Foul weather replacement day is the following day at the same time & location. To RSVP please visit www.gtrlc.org/events or call 231.929.7911.
