Join the Methow Conservancy’s second annual Seed Mob and help plant burned areas in the Methow Valley on Nov. 7, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Volunteers will spread native seeds onto some of the areas impacted by fire lines and powerline repairs from this summer’s fires up Twisp River Road.
The fires in the Methow Valley didn’t burn as much acreage as last year, but there is even more ground to cover this year due to the amount of land that was disturbed by work to repair burned power poles, so the Conservancy is hoping to gather an “extreme” seed mob.
Participants will meet at the Winthrop Barn parking lot for a quick tutorial on post-fire recovery and how to plant native seed. No experience is required.
Seed-mobbers should come dressed to be outside — layers are recommended. Bring gloves, a bag or small backpack to hold seed, a metal rake if you have one, and food and water for the morning.
Children and families are welcome. Participants will need to be able to maneuver through uneven ground and handle some steep slopes.
Organizers will assign seed locations and set up carpools that morning at 9 a.m. RSVP at email@example.com or call 996-2870.
