Oklahoma Native Seed Library

Starting this year, I am developing the Oklahoma Native Seed Library. We will collect seeds from iconic Oklahoma native plants. My goal is to acquire seeds from around the state to represent a variety of genetic diversity. We will launch the initiative by focusing on charismatic grasses of the Oklahoma prairie and woodlands. As the collection grows, I plan to expand the species we collect and eventually offer seeds for native plant landscaping and restoration projects. This fall we will host a Registry Field Day centered on a seed harvest workshop to demonstrate how to collect and document seed collections for our seed library.
