Restoration Workday: Native Seed Collection


Restoration Workday: Native Seed Collection

Thursday, September 23

9 AM - 12:01 PM


Grassy Lake


Grab some work gloves, help restore the environment, and get a behind-the-scenes look at your preserves!


Come join us!  No experience necessary.  Restoration Workdays occur in dozens of sites around the county, some on weekdays & some on weekends.  These are no-commitment - come to as many workdays as you can.  Children 10 years & up are welcome with an adult (and waiver signed by legal guardian).   Please be prompt; the group will often head off-trail and you may have a difficult time finding them.  Dress for the weather.  Closed-toe shoes are required & long pants are recommended all year-round.  Bring work gloves. 




NOTE: If the weather is questionable (e.g. thunderstorms, extreme heat or cold), please contact Kelly Schultz to confirm before heading out to the scheduled workday.

New volunteers and groups of four or more, please RSVP to Kelly Schultz so we have enough supplies for everyone.  View all upcoming workdays »
