Native Plant Workshop with Jeff Steele ~ Join Naturalist Jeff Steele for a hands-on Native Plant Workshop. Learn about identifying native plants, collecting seed, seed germination over winter and spring planting. Take home your very own mini-greenhouse using a milk jug, a bit of soil, and some collected native wildflower seeds. Be ready to get your hands dirty!  Then set the jugs outside over winter to freeze and sprout naturally. Next summer you can plant what you grow and donate any extra plants to Plant Dane for schools and community centers.  Take a short walk to see native wildflower plantings along Starkweather Creek.

Meeting Location: 538 McCormick Ave (at the end of Commercial Ave. meeting across from McCormick Park off-leash dog park)
