Volunteer Stewards…

Will be sowing native seeds on the Broughton Preserve Right of Way, this Sunday, Dec 11, from 2-4 pm.

Over 70 species of plants and 17# of native seeds have been collected since summer!

The work itself is very easy, but plan for hiking up and down hills in long pants and good hiking boots. And… bring an extra rake if you have one!

We will meet at the very top of the hill behind GBW Complex #3.

  • Enter GBW Complete #3 off Rt.
  • Go up the hill and turn left at the first row of buildings.
  • Go all the way to the pond (don’t go down).  Turn right and then go all the way up to the top of the hill.  There is parking up there.

Questions or get lost, call or text me!     Mark Krivchenia

Volunteer stewards have been collecting and processing seeds from many native grasses and forbs (flowering plants) at the Broughton Nature and Wildlife Education Area. This community of volunteer stewards is working to restore and maintain the native landscapes on the Preserve. By applying principles of ecological restoration, seeds can be used to repair damaged areas of our natural ecosystems and/or return them to their original states. Contact Mark Krivchenia to volunteer—224.545.1604.
