Fall is a beautiful time of year to be out in the prairie! The colors are changing and prairie seeds are ripening on the stem. Join Dane County Parks for a fall harvest on the prairie as we collect seeds around the County at different parks each week. Seeds are collected to plant and enhance lands in other natural areas for pollinators, wildlife, and land restoration. Join us for what will be a unique and rewarding experience. No prior experience is needed. All tools and training will be provided. Groups (students or other) need to contact Lars directly to register and talk over logistics.

We meet at 9:00 am and may drive or walk to a location within the park. Wear long pants, long sleeve shirt, closed toed shoes, bring own drinking water, work gloves and be prepared for mosquitoes.

COVID guidelines: Sign-up required--slots are limited; wear mask at orientation, break, and when social distance cannot be maintained; no masks required when collecting seeds at a safe distance.
