Join ACE as we collect native seeds and acorns that will be used to diversify native tree stock for local restoration projects. Seeds will be given to state nurseries where they will be grown into seedlings and planted the following year on private properties, near streams, and in forests throughout Virginia. This seed collection project is a part of the regional Growing Native project organized by the Potomac Conservancy.
