Morning Prairie Seed Harvest

By Taylor on October 3, 2013 in Blog


Join the INHF staff for a fun-filled morning collecting native prairie seed from an INHF-owned remnant prairie on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013. The event will take place from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the Breen Prairie located approximately 3 miles north of Monticello on Highway 28 in Jones County. After the seed is harvested by hand, it will be distributed to other parts of the property where we would like to increase native plant diversity.

All are invited to participate in this volunteer opportunity. We recommend wearing work gloves and clothing suited for the outdoors and the day's weather. Snacks and coffee will be provided by INHF.

If you plan to attend, please contact Mary Runkel, INHF volunteer coordinator, by email or at 515-288-1846, ext 17. Registration by Oct. 15 is preferred.
