Collecting Milkweed Seed in the Santa Monica Mountains

August 28 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Join us on a guided hike collecting Narrowleaf Milkweed seed! Learn how to identify, bag, and tag maturing milkweed seeds for restoration.

About this event

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE REGISTERING!

Help us reach our goal of 10 million Narrowleaf Milkweed seeds collected for this Summer!

Join us for an exciting adventure by harvesting Narrowleaf Milkweed seeds with the Monarcas crew. Volunteers will be shown how to identify and collect mature Milkweed seeds in the designated collection site.

Nearly all work will occur off trail, generally within a mile of the designated parking lots.

Participants must be prepared to walk in the heat, on uneven terrain, and for wildlife encounters. Participants will be allowed to borrow protective equipment to protect their legs.

All participants must bring a minimum of 1 liter of water per person, with no exceptions. If a volunteer cannot demonstrate that at least 1liter of water is with them at the beginning of the seed collection, they will be not be allowed to join the collecting trip.

If you would like to help with milkweed collections but are physically unable to, we have opportunities in our nursery to help clean and grow milkweed seed in a much more peaceful and moderate setting, contact antoniosanchez@samofund.org for more details

REQUIRMENTS

  • WEAR HIKING ATTIRE & STURDY SHOES
  • BRING WATER- 1 LITER
  • SUNSCREEN

THE MONARCA CREW WILL BE CONTACTING INDIVIDUALS WHO REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT AND WILL FURTHER DISCLOSE THE EXACT LOCATION. SINCE WE ARE LIMITING A SMALL GROUP TO HARVEST, WE WANT TO ENSURE EVERYONE WILL ATTEND. EVEN JUST 2 OF 5 VOLUNTEERS REGISTERING AND NOT SHOWING UP WILL BE DETRIMENTAL TO OUR DAILY SEED COLLECTING GOALS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND UNDERSTANDING!
