Park service seeking volunteer seed collectors

Posted: Monday, July 21, 2003

ANCHORAGE (AP) The National Park Service is seeking volunteers to hand-pick seeds from Denali National Park's native plants.

The seeds will be used to keep a seed bank for restoration and revegetation projects.

Park officials said there is more of a need for the seed bank this year because of construction projects in the park, including the building of a new entrance area.

Volunteers will collect along the first 15 miles of the park road for four days, from Aug. 19 to Aug. 22.

The National Park Service will provide tools and training. Volunteers must have their own camping equipment and food.
