Native Seeds Collection Project
On the Boise National Forest
Idaho Conservation Data Center Research Ecologist JENNIFER MILLER will describe this project that began in 2002. What species have been collected and why? How are sites chosen? What information is collected from the site? Who collects it? Hear the ups and downs and ins and outs of seed collection. Jennifer will describe how the study has been set up and take a look at the objectives that drive the project.
CLARK FLEEGE, Manager of the Lucky Peak Nursery, will show us what happens to the seed once it is collected and brought in to the Nursery. How long does it take to grow seed to predictable reproduction? What s growing in those shiny new greenhouses up there?
To see things in the seed, that is genius. — Lao Tzu
