Prairie Seed Collection

Description

Help collect prairie plant seeds!  We use these local, native seeds in future prairie restoration projects.

We will be out in the prairie so there will be plenty of space to distance ourselves, however please bring a mask just in case! Staff will sanitize all provided tools (clippers, buckets, gloves etc.) before and after each use and provide hand sanitizer. If you have your own clippers and/or gloves, please bring them. We ask that you also bring your own water and wear long pants as well.

This is a great event for all ages and skills.
