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! There are many ways to get involved, including hosting native plants through mid-September. The plants will come in 2 ft square racks, will need partial sun, and require watering 1-3 times per week. For more info contact Sea Finn: sfinn@goldeneagleaudubon.org
