Parker Canyon Seed Collection

May 11, 2017

Free

This event is FULL! Please contact bryon@skyislandalliance.org if you wish to join our waiting list.

BACKGROUND

Sky Island Alliance is partnering with the National Forest Service and Borderlands Restoration to create a diverse pollinator plant palette of native understory plants in Parker Canyon! The seeds we collect will be grown out to be re-planted after we rid the canyon of invasive species.

PROJECT SCHEDULE & LOCATIONOur meet up time is yet to be determined, but you can count on an early start and a full day working down by Parker Canyon Lake. Volunteers should meet with SIA staff at our office (406 S 4th Ave)to catch a ride or caravan down to our worksite.

THE WORK AND WHAT TO KNOW

Our tasks will involve collecting seeds from targeted plant species. Volunteers do not need to have prior training to participate. Sky Island Alliance and/or Borderlands Restoration will provide all tools and instruction as well as extra copies of our volunteer waivers which need to be signed by each participant only once per calendar year.

WHAT TO BRING

  • Water, snacks, and lunch.
  • Sturdy footwear (ex. hiking boots) with closed toes is encouraged as are rain gear and sun protection (ex. wide-brimmed hat, sunblock, long sleeved shirt and long pants)
