You're invited to Snyder Heritage Farm for a fall prairie seed harvest!
Spend an autumn day learning about the land, exploring the prairie and gathering native seed to support its ongoing restoration. Stay after the harvest to hike around the area's prairie, woodland and oak savanna.
This activity is a great opportunity to use your VTO hours; no experience necessary. It is a favorite among our volunteers because of how peaceful and relaxing it is and no experience necessary.
An RSVP is required.
