I know it seems too early to be thinking seeds. Many of my plants are just starting to bloom. I just wanted to remind those who are interested that the seed exchange is going to take place ate the October meeting before the main program. Let a few of your garden native plants go to seed and bring the seed to the seed exchange. More information will follow in newsletters to come. There is information on seed collection available on the cnpsslo website under the resources/growing natives tab (link). Marti Rutherford

If you have an interest in collecting data at a rare plant habitat site, please join plant biologists Melissa Mooney and Bill Waycott for this workshop.
San Luis Obispo County is home to many rare plant habitats, most of which have not been surveyed in many years. We will work in teams to identify and record the dominant plant species within a 60-foot radius from a predetermined GPS point. We plan to survey other rare plant habitats in the county over the next two years. This data will be forwarded to the state office for inclusion in the Manual of California Vegetation.
Please meet at the corner of Highland Drive and Broderson Ave. in Los Osos. Bring a clipboard, sharpened pencil with a good eraser, a phone or device that reads GPS locations (if available), along with a hat, water, and snacks.
For more information, contact Melissa at (805) 459-8099, email@example.com.
