Seed Collection Workshop

The Mid Atlantic Regional Seed Bank wants you to help conserve our native plants! Join Ash Collection Manager, Molly Marquand to learn about emerald ash borer, the decline of ash trees, and how this rapid change in our forest is impacting other important native plant species. Participants will be taught how to identify the three major species of ash in New York, and other species associated with ash, like gray dogwood, elderberry, and Pennsylvania sedge. Learn how to collect these species seeds for long term storage and take part in an important, growing network of seed collectors and native plant conservationists. For questions and to RSVP, email ash.marsb@gmail.com.
