Golden Hills RC&D and Pheasants Forever are hosting a free prairie seed harvest event.
Volunteers will visit prairie remnants at the Caddy Property, a privately-owned area that includes high-quality remnant Loess Hills prairies. 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.
Event is free and registration is not required. All ages are welcome and no experience is required. Dress appropriately for the weather and rugged terrain. Bug spray and gloves are recommended. Event will be postponed if weather is not cooperative.
This will be one of several seed harvest events this fall throughout the Loess Hills. Stay tuned for future events at goldenhillsrcd.org/prairieseed and follow Golden Hills RC&D on Facebook.
Funding for this project is made possible by a grant from Gilchrist Foundation.
