Seed Collecting: Saturday 2-4 PM
Dear Friends of the Broughton Nature Preserve,
Seed collecting is coming to an end soon. Let’s get out and collect some common native species along the Broughton Right of Way–our little Appalachian prairie!
Meet at the top of the hill, behind the GWB Complex #3 (directions below). We will be collecting the prairie grasses and some common native plants that are abundant to spread on sunny areas where are clearing.
We will be going up and down some hills. Wear good shoes, long pants, and long-sleeved shirt. We provide everything else.
Hope to see you on Saturday!
Directions to GWB Complex #3:
1. Enter the GWB Complex #3 off State Route 821. It is the complex nearest the entrance/exit off of Interstate 77.
2. Go up the hill to the first set of buildings. Turn left.
3. Proceed all the way to the end of these buildings. Before you head down to the pond, turn right, and go all the way up the hill. The road will take you past all of the buildings. The road up the hill is a gravel road.
4. Parking is on top of this hill.
