Join us Saturday, September 24, 9:00-11:00 a.m. in the beautiful Sand Coulee Scientific & Natural Area just south of Hastings.
After a brief training, volunteers will help hand collect much-needed native prairie seed while enjoying this rare example of a sand-gravel prairie in full fall bloom. Volunteers will work with FMR Lead Ecologist Karen Schik in the natural area most recently added to the Sand Coulee Scientific & Natural Area. Seed will be used for further habitat restoration. Previous seed collection is not required all abilities are welcome. However, this activity is very detail-oriented, and generally best suited for teenagers and up. (Learn more about FMR volunteer seed collection events here.)
