Join our friends at Golden Hills RC&D and help collect native prairie seed! Volunteers will visit local prairie remnants and learn how to identify which plants are available for seed collection. The hand-collected seed will then be used for local prairie restoration and reconstruction projects. This event includes walking over steep, rugged terrain, so dress appropriately.

Meet at the Loess Hills Lodge. May be rescheduled if there is inclement weather. Volunteers do not have to pay the $5 park entry fee. Thank you for your help!

Please email lance@goldenhillsrcd.org with questions.

Project funding is provided by: the Iowa Department of Agriculture & Land Stewardship Specialty Crop Block Grant, the Gilchrist Foundation, Clif Bar Family Foundation, and Pottawattamie Conservation Foundation.
