Prairie seed collection
It’s fall on the Preserve. The trees are changing colors, the wildflowers have faded and the prairie is ripe for the picking. Fall is the time of year to collect seeds to continue our prairie restoration work, adding beauty and diversity to our prairie.
Our hard work is really starting to show some results on the Foxfield prairie. This summer our grasses were looking great and we saw an increase in native wildflowers adding color and variety to our prairie. We want this progress to continue, so we are planning a seed collection day!
On November 2 at 1:00 p.m. we will be meeting with any interested volunteers at the Wilderness Center’s Interpretive Building. We’ll be collecting a wide selection of seeds from tall grasses and wildflowers. No knowledge or experience is necessary to help collect seeds – we’ll teach you all you need to know!
