Seed Collection at Loda Cemetery Prairie
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us to collect seeds in one of our treasured remnant prairies, a favorite activity for many of our volunteers. Our natural areas staff will demonstrate how we clip and catch the seed heads and teach you to identify the right species of plant. This activity will allow volunteers to space themselves and work safely. We will also unveil a new interpretive sign installed on the wooden overlook. The donor of this sign will be on hand as well.
