Native Seed Harvest at Indian Springs
September 30 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us at Indian Springs Metropark to harvest seeds from milkweed and other native plants. This seed will be used, in the future, to spread native plants to other areas of the Metroparks! We will start with a brief discussion on native plants of the prairie and their role in the ecosystem before heading out to collect seeds.
Native plants are the cornerstone of a healthy ecosystem and support native wildlife and pollinators. We hope to “spread the love” throughout the parks and need all hands on deck to accomplish this!
Please come dressed for a day outside and off trail (closed-toe shoes, long pants, hat) and bring your work gloves, water, and face mask. Volunteers receive free day entry to the park the day they volunteer.
Fun for all ages.
Time: 10 a.m. – noon
Location: Indian Springs Metropark, Environmental Discovery Center Parking Lot
Registration is required by September 29.
