Loess Hills Prairie Seed Harvest
Waubonsie State Park
2585 Waubonsie Park Rd, Hamburg, IA 51640
*Rescheduled!* Tuesday, October 15
Golden Hills RC&D, Iowa Department of Natural Resources, and Friends of Waubonsie State Park are hosting a free prairie seed harvest event.
Volunteers will visit prairie remnants and learn how to identify which plants are available for seed collection. The hand-collected seed will then be used for prairie restoration projects at the park. Seed collected cannot be removed from the park.
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.
We will meet at the Overlook at 5:30pm and be out until dark (about 7:00).
This event is one in a series of Loess Hills Prairie Seed Harvest events in western Iowa, and part of Golden Hills' Fremont County Outdoor Adventures programs supported by Fremont County Tourism.
