Seed banking, or ex situ conservation, is an effective method of conserving rare and endangered flora for future generations. Explore 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.
