Tallgrass Prairie Seed Collection

Kansas

Looking for a way to get your hands dirty and get back to nature? Join us at Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve for family-friendly seed collection workdays on the third Saturday of July, August and September.

Volunteers are needed to help gather seeds from native prairie plants to be used in restoration areas of the preserve. No experience necessary - we'll show you what to look for. 

Suggested attire: boots, long pants, work gloves, hat. Pack a lunch or snack and don't forget to BYOWB - bring your own water bottle.
