Day of the Dead-Heading


The 2nd annual Day of the Dead-heading will take place on Saturday, November 2, at the Indiana State Museum grounds (and surrounding area).

Learn to dead-head (collect seed) from native wildflowers.  Seed collected can be taken home to start your own wildflower garden or put in the "common basket" to be used to seed various local areas. 


Meeting Place: Indiana State Museum (front steps), 650 W Washington St., Indianapolis, IN 46204

Event Time: 9:00-10:30 AM 

Event Partners: Reconnecting Our waterways (ROW), Keep indianapolis Beautiful (KIB), Urban Wilderness Trail, Indiana State Museum, Indiana Wildlife Federation

For more information about the Day of the Dead-heading, see the post by Reconnecting Our Waterways


IUPUI Students registering for the Day of the Dead-heading service learning event (Project 10) will join in the Day of the Dead-heading activities at the Indiana State Museum. After these are completed, we will go to the Lilly ARBOR (which is close by) to remove invasive species.
