Wildflower Seed Packs

We have a variety of seeds collected from around the county that we like to package to provide to the community. During the event, we will be measuring seeds and placing them in small packs, then affixing labels. Easy work.

We will also be using seed shakers to remove the fluff from milkweed seeds.

If enough people sign up, we may also engrave plastic bottles for the Butler County Stream Team. This is a citizen science water monitoring group that collects data on water quality from local streams and creeks.

We will be setting up in a large room to allow social distancing. Each person can have their own table, unless working with family members. Masks are recommended

Age: Anyone under the age of 18 will need to bring a copy of our waiver signed by their parent or guardian. Find it at https://www.butlerswcd.org/volunteer

We will be in a large meeting space with room to social distance.
Masks are recommended.
