Event type: 
Workshop
Workshop Number: 
1121

The Mid Atlantic Regional Seed Bank wants you to help conserve our native plants!

Join Ash Collection Manager, Molly Marquand to learn about emerald ash borer, the decline of ash trees, and how the resulting rapid change in our forest is impacting other important native plant species. Participants will be taught how to identify the three major species of ash in the New York / New Jersey region and 10 other native species associated with ash, like gray dogwood, winterberry holly, and switchgrass.

Learn how to collect these species' seeds for long term storage at the Regional Seed Bank and take part in an important, growing network of seed collectors and native plant conservationists.

You can help preserve our native communities!
