Volunteer Event: Package Native Seeds!

Nov 22, 2023
Volunteers needed to help package native seeds at three libraries this December

Madison Public Library is partnering with the Dane County Land & Water Resources Department to provide a collection of native Wisconsin plant seeds to library visitors this winter. The native plant seeds have been collected by Dane County Parks volunteers, and we plan to distribute them in multiple library locations over the next couple of months. Native Wisconsin plant seeds are best sown in the fall and left to overwinter (learn how in one of these upcoming classes!)

Now the library is looking for volunteers to help with the hard part: packaging the seeds so library patrons can take them home! Three library locations are looking for help on this project. If you would like to donate your time and effort, you can register for one event or multiple by clicking the links below: 

Your help is appreciated!
