Seed Collection: Processing the Bounty


Wednesday, October 2, 2019, 2:00pm to 3:00pm


Arnold Arboretum - 125 Arborway, Boston, MA

When our staff returns from seed collecting in the wild, there is little time for rest. Arboretum staff Andrew Gapinski, Sean Halloran, and Jared Rubinstein will travel for three weeks this September in Appalachia in search of seed from taxa targeted as part of the Campaign for the Living Collections. As the explorers return to the Arboretum with the fruits of their labor, the real work begins—from preparing seeds for their unique propagation treatments to assessing field notes, and mounting herbarium sheets. Join our Expedition Team at the Dana Greenhouses for a closer look at the collections made along their journey and an explanation of the processes currently underway.
