Last year's winter seed sowing event at the Nokomis Naturescape.
Join us this year INDOORS at Wood Lake Nature Center!

Meeting is free and open to Wild Ones members and the public. Invite friends and family!

Last year Wild Ones braved the elements to hold our Winter Seed Sowing event outdoors at the Nokomis Naturescape. This year we're partnering with Wood Lake Nature Center. One of their naturalists will join us to share some of the Center’s efforts to restore native plant communities in the park. We’ll be cozy fireside, while inside looking outside, upon the beautiful marsh landscape

Join us for this family-friendly event and get a jump-start on your 2023 habitat garden. The two mini workshops teach you winter sowing basics. Table sowing stations will offer the essential supplies of containers*, soil, water and seeds. A Wild Ones educational table will offer a selection of native seeds, native plant informational resources and experienced Q&A assistance. 

A number of pollinator garden seeds will be freely available, including milkweeds and blazing stars. Wood Lake Nature Center is also offering a variety of native grasses. ‘The more the merrier’, so we encourage people to bring their collected native seeds to sow and share. Please label with the following information:

  • Species Botanical/Latin name  
  • Common Name
  • Seed Source/Location

* While translucent containers will be available, as supplies last, we encourage people to bring, if possible. Clear liquid 1 or 1.5 gallon jugs (as used for water, milk, vinegar) and large, salad containers with lids work well. We can puncture drainage holes at the event.
