Glen Deven Ranch Native Seed Collection Day

Glen Deven Ranch Native Seed Collection Day
Saturday, October 20 | 9:00am – 1:00pm or 9:00 am – 3:00pm

We have completed the eucalyptus removal effort at Glen Deven Ranch and are moving into the restoration phase of the project. This volunteer work day will be centered on native seed collection, enabling us to create a native seed bank to be used for Glen Deven Ranch’s restoration. We plan to restore the newly opened understory to high quality native chaparral habitat from local sources of seed. The event will be of low strenuous activity, but some hiking will be required.

Please bring comfortable walking shoes, sun protection and water. Some of the collection sites may have exposure to poison oak so please wear long sleeved clothing.  We will provide tools and instruction.

We will complete 4 hours of seed collection from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and an additional 2 hours from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. of seed cleaning to consolidate and preserve the seed. Volunteers are not required to stay for the entire day. Carpooling is encouraged. If interested in helping with this effort please fill out the form below.

Glen Deven Ranch is approximately 20 minutes south of Carmel. Directions will be provided with your confirmation email.
