Maricopa County Parks-Native Seed Harvest

Maricopa County Parks is hosting several native seed harvest events in April and May at several parks. The native seed harvested will later be used to help in park restoration projects and will be planted in invasive species removal areas and parks impacted by wildfires. Collecting and planting local seed genotypes will help maintain the park's biodiversity and sustainability through climate changes.

Wednesday, May 25th

Registration is required. We will meet on-site, (park's nature center or parking lot). If this changes you will be notified through signup.com, hold a safety briefing (snakes, trail etiquette, and hydration), and hike out to the collecting areas (vary by the park). We will be physically removing the seed from the plants and collecting it in a bucket or bag. If you have pruning tools, like clippers or tongs bring them may be useful when working with cactus. Please bring plenty of water, a snack, dress appropriately, closed-toed shoes, long pants, hat, and sunscreen> please bring gardening or leather gloves.

If you have large paper bags please bring them with you, we could always use more for seed storage.
