Workshop: Seed Collection and Preparation • Riley County

Tuesday, Feb 7th, 2012 @ 7pm
Manhattan Church of Christ • 2510 Dickens Avenue • Manhattan, KS • Map

Joc Baker, KNPS Board member, former science teacher, and “professional” seed collector will guide the group through the process. Sample dried-seed-heads of common Flint Hill native plants will be available, and at the end of the session, participants may take home the seeds they have worked with. It is recommended that, if possible, attendees bring a hand lens or magnifying glass to use for separating very small seeds from insects and other particles.
The meeting will be in the lower level of the Manhattan Church of Christ, located at 2510 Dickens Avenue (a few blocks south and west of K-State basketball and football facilities). Snacks will be available. All members in the counties of the Manhattan Region, friends and guests, and anyone interested in learning more about native plants are welcome to join us.
