About this Project
In fall 2018, we partnered with Pottawattamie County Conservation and Iowa Prairie Network on two events for native prairie seed harvest. In 2019, with support from Gilchrist Foundation, we are expanding these efforts throughout the Loess Hills.
We will work with local partners to find volunteers for the project. 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.
We anticipate at least monthly seed collection workshops from May through October at several sites in the Loess Hills and will be looking for volunteers. Volunteers can come to as many or as few as they can! If you are interested, fill out this form.
