Citizen Science: Project Wingspan Native Seed Collection


Event Description:

Come collect native pollinator seed with CCPR for Project Wingspan! Project Wingspan (PW) is a two-year project supported by a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Federation (NFWF) to the non-profit, the Pollinator Partnership, which is leading a coalition of partners in an effort to enhance land across the Midwest to support our imperiled pollinators. 


Project Wingspan seeks to increase monarch and Rusty Patched Bumble Bee (RPBB) habitat by building off the success of our last NFWF grant funded project (Monarch Wings Across the Eastern Broadleaf Forest) and engaging public land managers and private land stewards throughout the 8-state target region of Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin through a series of monarch habitat enhancement activities with the goal of establishing 10,000 acres of monarch and RPBB habitat. 


All seed that is collected will be shipped off the main nursery with the Pollinator Partnership where it will be processed (cleaned and sorted) and distributed to predetermined conservation areas specifically for monarchs and RPBB habitat.
