Seed Collection Workshop 2023
October 14 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC-6
Take a piece of the Gottfried home with you!
The Gottfried Prairie is a hidden gem: a successful 50-acre prairie restoration adjacent to the UWO-Fond du Lac campus. Most of the species originated from the last remaining prairie remnants around Fond du Lac County. This workshop is for landowners who wish to collect prairie wildflower and grass seed for planting on their own property.
This is a free event sponsored by the Friends of the Gottfried Prairie & Arboretum and the Wild Ones Fox Valley Area Chapter.
The first part of the session involves collecting seed in bags. Following seed collection the seed will be sorted and distributed amongst the participants. Bags will be supplied. Participants should bring a small snips or pruner and sharpie marker if they have one. A limited supply will be available.
Workshop leaders: Margie Winter and Shannon Davis-Foust
Meet at the Gottfried shelter located in the east parking lot adjacent to UW Oshkosh, Fond du Lac.
THIS WORKSHOP IS CANCELLED IN THE EVENT OF RAIN OR RECENT RAIN. Seeds cannot be collected wet.
