Milkweed for Monarchs Seed Harvest

Join us for the first annual Milkweed for Monarchs Seed Harvest! Hosted by the Monarch Research Project and Linn County Master Gardeners; we're looking for individuals and groups who will help harvest milkweed seed pods this fall. They will be added to the Milkweed Seed Pantry for the “2019 Milkweed One Million Seed Give-a-way.” Milkweed pods are usually ready to harvest from mid-September through October, but dates are dependent on weather, moisture and other acts beyond our control. We will provide instructions for picking and places to find the pods.
