Fall is a beautiful time of year to be out in the prairie! The colors are changing and prairie seeds are ripe on the stem. Join Natural Areas Staff for a morning of harvesting seeds in various habitats – prairie, woodland, oak savanna all across the County at different parks each week. Seeds are collected to plant and enhance lands in other natural areas for pollinators, wildlife, and land restoration. Join us for what will be a unique and rewarding experience.
You do not need to be experienced in plant ID or have any prior knowledge of seed collection - we will have an overview of each species we'll be collecting. Children are welcome to attend if accompanied by a chaperone. Groups (students or other) need to contact Lars directly to register and talk over logistics.
Bring drinking water, sunscreen, bug spray, work gloves, and a snack, if desired. Wear closed toed shoes and clothes you don’t mind working in – long sleeves and long pants are recommended. Dress for the weather. We will provide all other tools and collecting materials.
We meet at 9:00 am and may drive or walk to a location within the park - please arrive on time. If you are unable to come or are running late, please email or call one of us to let us know.
Covid-19 Guidelines: The CDC and WI DHS have issued new recommendations regarding the current Covid-19, Delta variant situation. We will be sanitizing shared equipment and ask that participants keep at least 6' of distance between each other. Masks will not be required while outdoors.
