Seed collecting in northeast Nevada

Site for milkweed seed collection

Here in Carson City we’ve been staying very busy this field season. We’ve been doing a wide variety of projects, but most recently we’ve been doing many seed collections. We were scouting and collecting on the east side of the Pine Nut Mountains last week, and camping there at night! Our group successfully made about 20 collections, including Woods’ rose, fourwing saltbush, milkweed, and scabland penstemon. It was a great and productive trip. I really enjoy the field work we do because we get to go to  so many remote places that we wouldn’t otherwise see!
