FALL SEED PROCESSING

November 23 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm
Free

Each year we gather on the Saturday before Thanksgiving for our fall seed processing event. Seeds of a hundred or more native species have been carefully collected from North Branch sites throughout the growing season. The seeds will be hand processed using various techniques, after which the separated seeds will be distributed into 10 or 12 mixes based on habitat. Stewards will receive a portion of each mix to scatter in management areas, restoring healthy native plant communities.

Join us in this important end-of-season work. Bring a dish or snack to share with your fellow volunteers!

We begin at 9:00am and work until around 2:00pm or until we’re finished. It’s not necessary to arrive at 9:00am sharp, but best to come sometime in the morning hours. We’ll supply all the necessary tools and instructions.

Location: Skokie Park District facility, 7500 frontage road in Skokie. The facility is just west of the Edens Expressway, south of Howard St.
