Seed Cleaning

About this event

This event continues the work of Mission Monarch to support habitat restoration by cleaning seeds to be grown into plants for our sites and public giveaways.

Volunteers will be instructed on how to clean and separate seeds from floss and other organic materials. This volunteer work will take place outdoors near the Rancho Sierra Vista Nursery. Much of the work will take place under shade, but volunteers should be expected to stand for at least 2 hours and be exposed to the cold and sun for various lengths of time. Please wear hiking or outdoor working attire, bring water/ a reusable water bottle, sunscreen and a sun hat.
