    Sagebrush Seed Collection

    Volunteers are needed to collect sagebrush seed for habitat restoration of burned areas. Birds, reptiles, and mammals depend on sagebrush for food, cover, and nesting habitat. Sagebrush is a woody shrub with deep roots that protect soils from erosion. Millions of acres of sagebrush communities have vanished from the West. Volunteers help with restoration of sagebrush by collecting seed. Transportation and tools will be provided.
