    Sowing native seeds, making seed bombs, and studying local wildlife food webs are excellent tools for encouraging social and environmental responsibility by engaging students and communities in stewardship, citizen science, and advocacy.

    Join master propagator and educator Heather McCargo from Wild Seed Project, and Maine Audubon professional development trainers for a 3-hour workshop for teachers and community leaders. Workshop participants will learn to sow several varieties of native seeds for no-maintenance winter propagation and will make seed bombs. We’ll also explore aligning classroom activities and student products that this work can inspire and support.

    Certificates of completion indicating contact hours and scholarships are available.  Please contact Beth Pauls at [email protected] to request a scholarship.
