About the MTNSN:

As an eco-regional production hub for the National Seed Strategy, The Montana Native Seed Network brings together public and private conservation practitioners that are working in the native seed industry. Through partnerships genetically rich \ eco-type seed is derived from wild plant populations and produced on a largescale at the Montana Conservation Seedling Nursery in Missoula. This seed is accessible to all partners and customers to restore and enhance ecosystems throughout Montana.

About these volunteer events:

Volunteers will plant plugs of native plants within foundation seed fields located at the DNRC Conservation Seedling Nursery located off Spurgin Road. These plants will eventually serve as the source of seeds for the Montana Native Seed Network.

What will volunteers need to bring or wear?

Please wear closed toed shoes and dress appropriately to be outdoors. Long pants are recommended, and volunteers will be kneeling on the ground while planting seedling plugs.
