CA Native Grasslands Association’s 14th Annual Field Day
Virtual field day registration.
This field day presents the opportunity to look back and look forward at grassland restoration and practice in California’s spectacular native grasslands. We’ll take you through the restoration process: from wildland seed collection through farm production to tours of restored field site.
Follow the life of a seed from wildland seed collection to farm production.
Seed collection at Hedgerow Farms and Pacific Coast Seed with Jeff Quiter, Hedgerow Farms, Tanya Meyer, Yolo Co. RCD

Seeds of restoration: Where are they now? Tour the state with virtual “show and tell” site visits and presentations.
