Story County Conservation’s Integrated Roadside Vegetation Management (IRVM) department invites prairie enthusiasts to assist in gathering prairie seed at one of Story County’s hidden gems.
Public seed harvests are scheduled for Tuesday, September 25, and Thursday, October 4, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Doolittle Prairie. Participants will meet at the prairie entrance (14249 560th Ave) south of Story City. The seed harvests are weather dependent; registration is requested.
No experience is necessary; IRVM staff will show you where, how, and what species of seeds to collect. Sturdy shoes, socks, long pants, insect repellent, hat, and gloves are recommended. Please bring a re-fillable water bottle as we will be out in the prairie.
For more information about this or to register, contact Story County Conservation at 515-232-2516 (8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday), or email us at email@example.com.
