It’s Harvest Time! Collect Wildflower Seeds at the Native Seed Farm

Stewardship

Looking for a way to give back to Nature? Craving the crispy sweet smell of the hillsides in summer? 

Then sign up to help behind the scenes at the Irvine Ranch Conservancy’s one-of-a-kind Native Seed Farm in Irvine!  You will be harvesting seeds from quirky summer wildflowers such as vinegarweed, yellow pincushions, and California buckwheat. 

Just bring a reusable water bottle for yourself,  and all other tools and training with be provided!  You will get introduced to some of our beautiful native plants, and then we’ll get to work.

Reviewing the 1-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this Level 1 activity.

The seed you will pick has a direct impact on our local wildlife. It will be used out in the wild to re-grow animal habitat within the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks.   The types you’ll help us harvest were specially selected by our Ecologists to provide animals with food and shelter, and also to buffer the negative impacts of floods and wildfires, which affect people too.

Come help us harness the special traits of these plants to heal the wildland within the Landmarks! When you sign up, check the confirmation email to see tips on how to be prepared for your morning with us.
