Volunteers are needed to help collect prairie wildflower and grass seed at Grant-Bradbury Prairie Park for a wildlife restoration area at Warren Nature Area. We will be working with the city to restore an old brome/fescue field to a diverse planting of native wildflowers and grasses. Volunteers should wear sturdy footwear and long pants. Bring a plastic pail or paper sack for collecting seeds. Pruning sheers are helpful too. No experience is necessary. All ages can help. Please contact Jeff if you plan to attend. We will celebrate afterwards with a stop at the Blind Tiger Brewery at 37th & Kansas.

Perfect day for seed collecting. Even with the drought, seed production was good for most plants. We collected switch, indian, big & little blustem, cordgrass, and a few others. Flowers included blue sage, sunflowers, mountain mint, and lead plant. After 2 + hours of work, we harvested 8 large paper grocery sacks of seed.
