10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Picnic lunch provided and campfire s’mores to finish the day!
Expect to be outside most of the day. We will walk at a leisurely pace collecting and spreading seeds in a natural habitat. Not difficult, but ground may be uneven. Sturdy shoes recommended.
Interested in converting your yard into a pollinator meadow? Come help us turn a weedy patch of lawn into a wildlife habitat. You are invited to participate in a volunteer day to collect seeds and plant a pollinator meadow. This is phase 2 of a habitat planting project begun this summer by students at the biostation. Get some hands-on experience transforming a dull plot into a future habitat full of life!
We will be collecting seeds from the local area to plant in addition to a commerical pollinator seed mix. We will also demonstrate to volunteers how to collect seeds for repository in the Oklahoma Native Seed Library.
The OU Biological Station is in south central Oklahoma on the shores of Lake Texoma. The habitat of the area is bottomland forest with small patches of grassland on the uplands away from the lake shore. The grounds of the OU Biological Station have been dominated by mowed lawn. We are converting one of these biologically boring patches into a pollinator habitat.
