The virtual session will explore the question, why is it important to collect ash seeds? Attendees will leave with an understanding of how collecting ash seeds can help provide a future for ash trees in Northeastern forests. Les Benedict from the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe will tell the story of how seed collection and regrowing ash has continued and deepened his community’s ongoing relationship with these trees. Emily Francis will discuss the process of creating and implementing an Ash Seed Collection Manual. Les, Emily, and Nell Houde will overview the contents of the seed collection manual and prepare participants for a field visit in early September.
