October 18 – Seed Balls with Native Wildflower Seeds Workshop Learn how indigenous people preserved seeds, and use this ancient technique to make your own wildflower seed ball to take home! Arizona’s native bees and other pollinators need our help saving their habitat, and one way to do that is to gather, save, and plant native wildflower seeds. Students learn about native bees, citizen science, and native plants.
