Collect Wildflower Seeds to Share

10/03/09

 

Keep Austin Beautiful works with dozens and dozens of groups around to town beautify parks, creeks, greenbelts, and schools.  KAB has tools to share (www.keepaustinbeautiful.org/toolshack) and volunteers to lend a helping hand to these projects, but one of the main things lacking are native plants.  Now there’s the chance to get some FREE seeds to share all over Austin.

 

A site on the NE side of Pleasant Valley and Lyons is going to be developed and the owners have generously allowed access to the property to collect wildflower seeds.  Led by a Capital Area Master Naturalist, volunteers will be able to collect millions of Mexican hat and clasping coneflower seeds in just a couple of hours. 

 

Come join other volunteers this Saturday for a fun morning of seed collecting!

 

Date: Saturday, October 3rd

Time: 9am-11am

Location: meet at the NE corner of Pleasant Valley & Lyons (East Austin – 78702)

Parking:  parking is in the surrounding neighborhood, so please be courteous of neighbor’s driveways
