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

Stewardship

Want to stand knee-deep in rows of blooming color? Want to refresh your senses while giving back to Nature?

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 native summer wildflowers, like Yellow Pincushion and California Wishbone Bush.  Absolutely no experience or special equipment required!

Please note our Minors Policy as noted on the letsgooutside.org website:  All minors (under 18 years of age) must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. They must also (both parent and minor) be registered for the Irvine Ranch Conservancy led program they wish to attend.

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.
