What happens on natural open spaces after a fire? Or after the removal of invasive plant species? Using native plants in restoration can often be difficult because locally available and genetically appropriate seeds or plants for restoration are scarce.

The Sonoran Seed Collaborative is dedicated to find the best practices for propagating species of native Sonoran Desert plants to harvest for seeds for future restoration projects on public lands, parks and preserves in the region. We are grateful for the support of the Gila Watershed Partnership on this project and helping propagate plants for this project.
