FAMN - Native Seed Collection in Conway

Native seed collection of Plains Coreopsis (tinctoria). A quick collection (about 1 hour) in Conway (near Sam's Club). No loppers needed. A collection bucket or bag is useful, but I'll bring extra. Gloves if you would like but coreopsis are not prickly.

The beneficiary of this project is the seeding of the old baseball field at Dardanelle Lock and Dam with locally accessed native wildflowers. This project will be a joint endeavor of Foothills Master Naturalist, Pope County Master Gardeners and The US Army Corps of Engineers.

This sort of activity is weather dependent, so cancellation and rescheduling could be necessary.

NiTs are WELCOME and ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND!!!!!

GENERAL DIRECTIONS:

In Conway, east of I-40 on Dave Ward, Meet at Maly’s Entertainment Center.
This is just east of the Sam’s Club shopping center. We’ll gather in Maly’s parking lot – north side. Collecting will be in the dirt fields along both sides of the Maly Curv.
