October Seed Harvesting Workday


Saturday, October 12, 2019

Enjoy the orange and gold colors of the prairie during this workday of collecting seeds. There will be seed harvesting activities outdoors in the nursery, and seed cleaning activities in the shade of the pole barn. Fun for all, that’s our promise...and cookies too!

No experience necessary.  Fleece and wool clothing are not recommended because seeds stick to them and are a challenge to remove. Feel free to bring your lunch and have a picnic on the prairie or hike a trail at Kankakee Sands after the workday. 

We will begin the morning at the Kankakee Sands Native Plant nursery located at 1492 W 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 RSVP
