The CREEC Spring seed collecting hikes

We will be having our first spring hikes on the dates listed below:

About our hikes:

Join Bay Area botanist Dean Kelch and the CREEC crew for exploration of our East Bay natural habitats.

These leisurely hikes will consist of collecting California native plant seeds and cuttings for propagation at the Carquinez Horticultural Center, a Non-Profit Nursery in Crockett.

Hikes are recommended for adults and older children alike. Some of these areas have rather steep sections, but all have good paths.

The wildflower, tree, and grass seed collected on these excursions will be used in restoration efforts in our local watersheds. No prior experience is necessary, just a willingness to learn and an enjoyment of nature.
