Volunteers will hand collect prairie seed from the hillside prairie, which will eventually help expand the prairie. Seed harvests have become some of our most popular volunteer events, so we encourage both new and seasoned participants for this prairie extravaganza — all ages welcome!

Make sure to bring gloves and a water bottle. We’ll provide the snacks and water.

To register, email INHF Volunteer Coordinator Mary Runkel at Directions to the meeting place at Heritage Valley will be provided upon registration.
