The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kemmerer Field Office (KFO) is collecting native plant seeds for the third year as part of the BLM’s Seeds of Success (SOS) program. The seed collecting effort this year will be focused on species which occur above 7,000 feet in elevation because of severe drought conditions. The BLM has contracted with botanist Denise Wilson to collect 10,000 to 20,000 seeds each of 30 species of native forbs, grasses and shrubs. Utah Conservation Corps crews, BLM employees and volunteers will assist with these collections. All collections are done by hand; with a crew of 8-10 workers an estimated 10,000 seeds can be collected in just a few hours.
