Seed Cleaning over Coffee at the Big Bear Ranger Station

About this Event

Join the Mountains Foundation’s Great Seeds Restoration Program, to collect, clean, start seedlings, and plant native species all in effort to make the forest more beautiful, resilient, and valuable to wildlife.

Beginning Winter 2020, we invite volunteers to help clean native, locally collected seed for an enjoyable, friendly couple of hours indoors. No experience necessary, bring your coffee cup, and a smile to join others who love nature and native plants.
