September Seed Harvesting Workday


Saturday, September 14, 2019

It’s pickin’ time. Join us as we collect seed from a variety of native flower and grass species for use in our upcoming restoration plantings. While we are collecting, there’s no telling what we will see…flowers, butterflies, birds… After harvesting the seeds, we will transport them to our seed barn facility for drying and planting this winter. The workday is very family friendly and appropriate for all ages and abilities. 

No experience necessary. Fleece and wool clothing is not recommended because seeds stick to them and a challenge to remove. We will be meeting at working at the Kankakee Sands Nursery, located at 1492 W CR 250 N, Morocco, IN 47963. RSVP’s appreciated. Contact Alyssa Nyberg by email at anyberg@tnc.org or call (219) 866-1706 for more information and to R.S.V.P.
