Seed Conservation

Seed banking, or ex situ conservation, is an effective method of conserving our rare and endangered flora for future generations. Join Michael Piantedosi as we explore the process of procuring, cleaning, and accessioning seeds in a seed bank. We will focus on this process in three parts: seed collection (part 1), seed cleaning and processing (part 2), and seed storage for indefinite freezing at 0°F (part 3). This course is suitable for professional conservationists as well as those interested in peeking behind the curtain at Native Plant Trust’s regional seed bank.
