Join us for a fun session of seed cleaning! These seeds were collected this fall at our two seed collection events for our Black Jack Battlefield project, and the clean seeds will be used to boost diversity in our prairie restoration. No experience necessary- seed experts will be on hand to guide you and answer any questions you may have!

To maintain as safe of an environment as possible for our staff and volunteers, we will be hosting this event outdoors. We will be meeting at Kill Creek Park Shelter 1, located at 11670 Homestead Lane Olathe, KS 66061. If you plant to attend, please RSVP as we can only have a maximum of 30 volunteers in order to maintain adequate social distancing.
