First, James explained how to collect the seeds...
...then the SIFTers went to work!
Afterwards, they learned that you can eat some of the seeds that had attached to their clothes.
Next was Monarch butterfly tagging with Aileen.
A butterfly tagged by previous SIFTers was recaptured in Mexico! Hopefully this one will also have a successful migration.
Shaw has a system for collecting and drying seed from native plants to be used in additional terrestrial ecosystem restorations. James showed the SIFTers the seed processing area and had them add their collected seed to the correct trays.
