Event Description

It is time to start collecting  prairie seed from various plants that are ready to pick. This is a great way to experience the beauty of prairie plants up close, learn about  the species as well as help collect seed for future prairies.

We meet at 9:00 am and may drive or walk to a location within the park.  Direction and supplies for the seed collection project will be supplied.  Wear long pants, long sleeve shirt, closed toed shoes, bring own drinking water, work gloves and be prepared for mosquitoes.

We usually collect  seeds till 12 noon.
