Monarch Watch is seeking volunteers to collect wild native milkweed seeds for the Bring Back the Monarchs campaign. Thanks to the donations of over 90 seed sources from across the United States, Monarch Watch was able to distribute more than 50,000 native milkweeds this past spring. But they could have distributed more!
For information on what seeds are needed and how to collect them, go to the following link:
Also, here is a video that explains how to collect milkweed seeds from pods.
And if you want to plant milkweed seeds in the ground this fall, you can read about it here.
