Prairie Seed Harvest

Location:  Raccoon River Park, 2500 Grand Avenue

In November of 2006, the Parks and Recreation Department invited other City staff to help harvest seed from prairie areas at Raccoon River Park.  A dozen people participated on a gorgeous fall day by collecting bags of seed from grasses and forbs.  This seed was processed by Department staff and used to help restore other prairie areas in the parks system.
