Badger Ridge Prairie Seed Harvest - Hitchcock Nature Center
Date and time to be announced
**Postponed due to weather. We need several hours of sun after rain to ensure seed is dry, as harvesting wet seed can cause mold to grow and make the seed un-viable. We'll reschedule again for a sunny day soon! Thanks for your understanding and patience.
Golden Hills RC&D and Pottawattamie Conservation are hosting a free prairie seed harvest event.
Volunteers will visit prairie remnants along Badger Ridge 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.
We will meet at the Loess Hills Lodge at Hitchcock at 6:00pm and hike out Badger Ridge Trail.
This will be the first of several seed harvest events this fall at Hitchcock. Stay tuned for future events at goldenhillsrcd.org/prairieseed and follow Golden Hills RC&D on Facebook.
