Native Plant Network: News & Opportunities

GEAS is a key partner of the The Treasure Valley Native Plant Network, which works together to collect, germinate, propagate, and create banks of seedlings for planting in restoration sites around the Treasure Valley. This April, Sean Finn represented GEAS and the Network and repotted 1000 native plants with Lowell Scott Middle School students! 

Here's how you can get involved:

Host Native Plants for the Summer
Help care for plants from mid-May to mid-September. The plants will come in 2 ft square racks, will need partialsun, and require watering 1-3 times per week.

Repot Seedlings with Students
Visit schools in late April-early May to re-pot seedlings with students. There will be 5-6 opportunities on weekdays, during school hours. 

For more info or to volunteer for these opportunities contact Sean Finn: sfinn@goldeneagleaudubon.org
