Huron-Clinton Metroparks

Native Seed Balls

Seed balls are a fun way to get your hands dirty while also helping the environment! A seed ball is a small ball made out of soil and clay with a few seeds attached to the outside or placed inside. The seed ball is then dropped in an area lacking native plants (best results on bare soil with low competition) and the soil/clay mixture provides a nutrient rich and moist substrate for the seeds to grow in. Once the seed balls are planted, sit back and watch native wildflowers and grasses appear over the next few years!

We are asking volunteers to make seeds balls to be planted throughout the Metroparks native areas. Volunteers can pick up the materials, including the native seeds at designated pick-up spots at the Metroparks. Volunteers are asked to make the seeds balls at home, then drop them off at the Metroparks to then be planted.

Please sign up and we will send more detailed information on 'how-to', where to pick up materials-including the native seeds, and when and where to drop off the seed balls. Thank you for helping to restore our native areas!
