Native Seed Drive
CRCL needs your cypress seeds
In 2022, CRCL began growing bald cypress and mangroves at our Restoration Headquarters. Now, we need your seeds! We are collecting and planting native, locally grown cypress seeds. Seeds can be collected from a tree in your yard, on the side of the road, or from parking lots. The more seeds we collect the larger our native plant nursery can grow, and the more trees we can plant across the coast. We are currently accepting bald cypress (Taxodium distichum) seed donations!
