Seed Collection Schedule

Lots of smiles. It’s a favorite time of the year. This week’s seed collection schedule is:

Fall is an important seed collection time. This is a fun, family-friendly, easy activity to help nature. Learn about native plants and enjoy these Fall days. We’ll be collecting almost everyday so lots of schedule and location opportunities. Seeds are collected, cleaned and then combined into special mixes to improve habitats. CFC shares approximately 50% of collected native seeds with other local forest preserves and conservation organizations.

For everyone’s health and safety we will be following the current COVID-19 recommendations. We plan for the number of volunteers planning to attend. Therefore Reservations will be required to participate in any of our weekly work events. You can request a reserved spot by emailing [email protected]

Once your spot is confirmed, please bring your own face mask, work gloves, water, and snack. We will practice social distancing during the work event.

Working together – we do more. Hope to see you soon.
