Seed Collecting at Black Jack Battlefield with Grassland Heritage
August 28 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am CDT
One event on September 14, 2021 at 6:00 pm
One event on October 16, 2021 at 10:00 am
We will be hosting a total of four seed collecting workdays on August 28, September 14, and October 16. See the Calendar on our website for location and times.
The seed that we collect at these events will be used in our prairie planting and restoration efforts at Black Jack.
We will meet at Back Jack Battlefield and Nature Park but we will collect seed from the neighboring Ivan Boyd Prairie. Ivan Boyd Prairie is a highly-diverse, remnant prairie site and is a beautiful place to learn how to collect native seed. These events are open to folks of all ages and experience, and are especially family-friendly. Prairie experts will lead you through the event and answer any questions you may have. Seed collecting is one of the best ways to learn about our native plants while enjoying all that the prairie has to offer!
PLEASE RSVP to any event you plan to attend!
