can anyone recommend a good source of free/donated (or very low cost) native and regionally local seeds? most of the websites I see online (Prairie Moon, Select Seeds) are not from Virginia
Janet Davis
29:02
Give me a call, Janet Davis @ Hill House Nursery. I sometimes have extra seed. Hoping other landowners will allow us to collect seed to increase our access to local ecotype

I had the privilege of being a citizen scientist with Cathy we did bird surveys over several years on various farms.I learned so much from her and had such a great time.It is hard to see birds in the field and not think of her. I hope she is still among them all.

help with small landowner conservation- what can we do with less than 10 acres to help ecosystems
Lisa Volgenau
01:07:13

Marilyn Kupetz

The projects look amazing. How might volunteers get involved again? I’ve supported T’ai’s project since 2017 as a collector. will that be possible in 2021?

Thx
Caryl Buck
01:09:19
I, too, would like to hear more about maybe working on studies on small landowner contributions down even to backyards to get more people involved. Also studying the problem of successful Bobwhite Quail reintroductions.
Charlotte Lorick
01:09:20
Marilyn - did that address what you are looking for? Just reach out to us and we can add you to the contact list for 2021 for more info about volunteering
Marilyn Kupetz
01:09:42
Yup, awesome!!
Maddie Lichter
01:10:17
If we haven’t volunteered in the past, we wouldn’t be able to volunteer in 2021 b/c of COVID, right? At least as things stand now
Charlotte Lorick
01:10:35
William and Caryl - great thank you for the feedback! We are glad to know there is more interest in conservation issues on smaller properties too and will definitely keep that in mind
Beatrice Von Gontard
01:10:40
NWF.org gives info on how to create wildlife habitat in your own backyard.
Charlotte Lorick
01:10:55
Yes - thanks Beatrice!

Lisa - thank you so much for the feedback! :)
Caryl Buck
01:12:09
I know about that, but I do see studies being done on the actual degree of difference if its making and impact. And also, on landowners 5-10 acres.
