City of Des Moines Parks and Recreation Department

2022 Prairie Seed Harvest

October 8th - 22nd, 2022

Come enjoy the outdoors with a relaxing volunteer opportunity! Volunteers will harvest prairie seed by hand, which will be used in future prairie plantings and add diversity to established prairies. No experience necessary - training will be provided on-site. Please wear long pants and close-toed shoes.

In order to comply with emergency proclamations by the Governor or Mayor, as such may be amended from time to time, and as public health guidelines evolve, for the safety of staff and the public, the Parks and Recreation Department reserves the right to cancel at any time. In addition, the Department reserves the right to change the registration requirements at any time. The Department will contact the volunteers as soon as reasonably possible with such cancellation or changes.

The City of Des Moines cannot guarantee that the volunteer or any of the event attendees will not become infected with COVID-19. Volunteers and attendees use the City’s facility at their own risk.

There are no shifts available at this time.
