Join Rhode Island Natural History Survey botanist Hope Leeson for the last of three sessions in our Native Plant Seed Workshop Series.
This indoor session, at the Rhode Island Native History Survey Kingston, will focus on cleaning and processing the seeds that were collected in a previous session at the Arcadia Management Area in West Greenwich. These seeds include those from Lobelia cardinalis -cardinal flower, several species of Solidago – goldenrod, and asters as well as others.
Although the workshops are intended as a series, participants do not need to attend all three sessions.
Hope is an authority on Rhode Island Native Plants. In addition to her many roles at Rhode Island Natural History Survey she directs the Rhody Native™ Initative, which seeks to preserve the biodiversity of Rhode Island’s native plant communities, wildlife, and pollinators, by facilitating the state’s capacity to produce genetically native plants. Rhody Native™ celebrates Rhode Island’s local identity.
Please note: Collecting seed on public lands can only be done with proper written authorization. We thank the Department of Environmental Management for allowing us to collect seed in the Arcadia Management Area.
Fee: $15.00; $10.00 for RIWPS members
