Mt Rose Wilderness Native Plant Re-Seeding - Fall 2022

Join us in Restoring Mt Rose Wilderness! 

Spring 2022, volunteers worked hard to remove over 26,000 invasive musk thistle from Mt Rose Wilderness! This fall, we will be heading back into Mt Rose Wilderness to spread native seeds in these recovering riparian areas and help back native plants. We will hike bags of seeds from native grasses and pollinator-friendly plants, spread them across the meadows by hand, and then let nature take them from there. These are fun projects that usually only take half a day to complete, but can make a huge difference in the ongoing restoration efforts. 

Timing: Seeds are the most successful if spread right before snow or rain, so therefore, we are not setting specific dates at this time. Our timeframe is Late October through mid-December. Those who Register on this page will be notified as soon as possible before we head out (about a week's notice). At that point, you can let us know if you are available to join us. Spots will be limited on those projects. 

Difficulty: We will hike 2 to 6 miles, partially off-trail, and up and down steep slopes. We will carry no more than 10 lbs of seed each. These projects may not be appropriate for children under 12 years of age. 

RSVP/Registration: If you are interested in joining us, please register below. We will contact you as soon as possible before a re-seeding project (about a week's notice). Because this is weather-dependent, flexibility in scheduling is necessary, thanks for your understanding.
