Help restore prairie by collecting native wildflower seed. Volunteers help increase the amount and
diversity of seed planted each year. Nearly 2,000 acres of restored prairie are now managed by Three
Rivers Park District. Your help is extremely important to this effort. Invite your friends to participate too!

Seed collection starts in late August and runs through early October on selected Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

For the current schedule and to register go to: www.threeriversparks.org/page/prairie-seed-collection

The minimum age for participation is 12. Youth must be accompanied by an adult (1 adult/8 youth 12-14 years). Groups of 10 or more adults or youth accompanied by adults may arrange special collection dates by contacting Angela Grill, Natural Resources Wildlife Specialist, at 763-694-7851 or Angela.Grill@threeriversparks.org.
