Event Description

Space is limited, Sign-Up Required:

After many hours of seed collecting last summer and fall, followed by many more hours spent seed processing and weighing earlier this winter, it’s finally time to get all that seed on the ground! Join us to help plant a new prairie by hand casting seed: we’ll provide bags of seed for a given species, you’ll spread the seed across the site in areas that species is likely to grow – no prior experience is needed, all training will be provided.

This job will require walking through snow across frozen ground, please dress appropriately for the weather, including warm gloves and tall boots. If conditions are appropriate feel free to bring snow shoes if you have them.

COVID-19 Guidelines: Do not attend if experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms.
