Event Overview

To restore Wyoming’s grasslands to health, scientists use native seeds from sagebrush, grasses and wildflowers. You can lend nature a helping hand by joining a national park ranger and an ecologist from The Nature Conservancy to identify and collect these native seeds. 

No previous plant identification experience is needed. 

In Grand Teton National Park, meet at 9 a.m. at the Moose Post Office, across from the Craig Thomas Visitor Center. We will then caravan in our respective private vehicles to field sites, which vary across the park. We will wrap up seed collection around 12:30 p.m. Anyone who has time to stay until 1 p.m. is welcome to eat lunch/snacks in the field with the scientists.

Come prepared with close-toed shoes, water, sunhat, bear spray and lunch. RSVPs are appreciated. Please email Jasmine Cutter at
