Naturally Arkansas: The Wonderful World of Native Seeds

This month, we’ll be talking about seeds, which are essential to life on Earth. Ben Thesing, Natural Resource Specialist at Central Arkansas Water, and host Lynn Foster will be discussing the dispersion and germination of native seeds, and how to best handle them to grow native plants. Fun fact: Kentucky coffeetrees are rare today. One theory for this is that their seeds were intended to survive being digested by mastodons and giant sloths, and without that exposure to stomach acid, the seeds don’t germinate. Learn about this and more, and bring your questions!

The event will take place on the Zoom platform. Free registration is required.
