Native Plant Workshop with Jeff Steele ~ Grow your own native plants! This special nature outing with Master Naturalist Jeff Steel will offer a free workshop to introduce you to native plant propagation. We will be identifying native plants, collecting seed, and learning about germination. You will then have the opportunity to take home your very own “mini-greenhouse” with collected seed. Come ready to get your hands dirty!  

*Special Meeting Location: 1220 Carpenter Street, take the Starkweather Bike Path entry to Carpenter-Ridgeway Park and meet at the Carpenter-Ridge kiosk.
