Many thanks to Ahlene Shong who collected cherokee sedge from a field in SW Houston last week.  Also thanks to Don Verser & Mary Ann Beauchemin who let us know about the many Cherokee sedge ready to be collected at Nature Discovery Center in Bellaire and allowed us to collect.
.
We are collecting seeds for the various projects discussed on the webpage at http://prairiepartner.org/group/prairie-seed-council-of-texas and in the downloadable document titled “Rebuild Houston’s Heartland” at the bottom of that page.

See you on the prairie Friday collecting seeds,

Come and help us collect prairie seeds, experience the prairie, help restoration efforts and also take some seeds home for your own garden. 

 

Please send comments about your seed collecting trips to share with other prairie enthusiasts.  Be sure to post photos of seed collecting trips at the CPP website: www.prairiepartner.org  and send me a link.  Or if you prefer, send Lan (Lan.Shen@txgcmn.org) the photos and I will post them and credit the photos to you.
