Volunteer Overview

Our partner Friends of the Sands is leading a seed stratification workday at Kankakee Sands on Saturday, December 9.

Believe it or not, in only 2 months we’ll be sowing seeds for our May 2024 Native Plant Sale! Come to this workday to help us prepare our seeds for germination. We’ll work together to fill our bags of seed with moist sand before we place them in the refrigerator for 60 days to mimic winter conditions.

  • Youth are welcome to attend with their parents.
  • Wear weather-appropriate layers!

Please RSVP so we know you’re coming!
