Volunteer Seed Collecting - Assiniboine Forest

Join us for the opportunity to collect prairie seeds. Seed collecting is very important for our propagation efforts – it ensures that we maintain genetic diversity in our restorations and seed plots. This is also a great opportunity to start a little prairie of your own, as you have the option of keeping a portion of the seeds you collect.

We review sustainable harvesting practices, and help you learn some target species.

Please call to register, and remember to leave a phone number in case plans change due to weather.
