Seed Collecting (Must register for info) Postponed


Saturday, October 15, 2022 - 1:00pm






Krissy Boys, Native Plant Gardener, Cornell Botanic Gardens


The annual seed walk is back on. Help collect summer and fall blooming species for both the FLNPS seed exchange and the Cornell Botanic Gardens Natural Areas propagation program. Learn to identify dead and dying plants in the process, and how to properly collect and store various types of seeds. Always fun!

RAIN DATE - October 22, same time - contact info@flnps by noon if uncertain.  

If seeds are very slow in ripening, this walk may be moved to the rain date, so please check the website prior to leaving home!

Postponed due to immature seeds. The walk is full, but a wait list is available should you want to be contacted if enough registrants cannot attend.


Required COVID-related safety protocols
- If you are feeling ill, or have a fever, or have recently tested positive for COVID-19, please do not attend the walk!
- If any items have been handled by multiple members of the group, hand washing or sanitizing during or soon after the walk is strongly encouraged.
- The group may consist of both vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals.  Leaders will not attempt to determine vaccination status (nor entertain anyone's claims about their own status), so safety protocols most appropriate for unvaccinated people (as stated above) must be adhered to by all participants.
