2022 Prairie Seed Dispersal

December 10th, 2022
Ewing Park

Join us for a winter prairie hike while volunteers disperse hand-collected prairie seed at Ewing Park. This will help add diversity to our natural areas to provide food and shelter for wildlife, improve water quality, and add beauty. No experience necessary, and all ages are welcome. Hot drinks will be provided. Please wear adequate footwear and clothing to walk through the tallgrass prairie.
