Join our friends at Golden Hills RCD 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 in western Iowa's Loess Hills. 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.
