Collecting Seeds for Nature

Part of a group? Want to do community service?

Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, 4-H Clubs, homeschoolers, church groups, employee teams, individuals, and families welcome!

This fun and easy community service opportunity that benefits nature is great for all ages and groups. Our naturalists will show you how to collect seeds from native wildflowers and grasses in the prairie at Nygren Wetland Preserve, which we will use in future plantings at NLI preserves.

Start anytime and work as long as you like between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Snacks and water will be available.

Bring gloves and dress for the weather. Long sleeves, pants and sturdy shoes recommended.

Register by Fri. Oct. 4.
