OCVN Milkweed Pod Collection Project

Dec 3, 2015, 2:00pm - 3:00pm
771 East Main Street, Suite #102, Newark, Ohio

The Ohio Pollinator Habitat Initiative (OPHI) and the Licking County Milkweed Seed/Pod Collection Project have received some milkweed seed/pods collected from various folks and are storing them in the USFW Partners for Fish and Wildlife Prgram Ohio Private Lands office in Newark. We'd like to have a milkweed seed-cleaning party (meeting) and have set that meeting date for Thursday, December 3, starting at 2:00 pm, in the large conference room. 

We'd also like to connect with partners who would be willing to assist with not only collecting and cleaning the milkweed seed/pods, but also with propagating the milkweed seeds into milkweed plugs for planting next spring.
