All ages are invited to collect seeds from the native prairie wildflowers and grasses. The staff of NLI will explain how to identify the plants and collect the seeds, which will be dried and stored during the winter and then planted in the spring at Nygren Wetland Preserve.

Collecting seeds is an activity for all ages, families, scout troops, 4-H clubs, church and corporate groups. It provides hands-on learning about nature as well as a community service.
