Hi Seed Collectors,
Please join us at two seed collecting events this month:
Seed collecting is a leisurely way to enjoy the prairie and learn prairie plants. Walk with a companion in the prairie & run your hands up the appropriate seed head. Seeds that easily fall in your hand are ripe for collection. Or walk with a pair of scissors/pruners to cut off seeds with tough stems.
Nash Prairie: Friday, December 4, 2015, 10 a.m. – noon or later
"The Nature Conservancy needs help hand collecting Liatris acidota seeds from the Nash Prairie on Friday, December 4th starting at 10:00 A.M.
If you have an electric hedge trimmer please bring it if you can, it will make the work easier. Otherwise, bring the usual for seed collecting,
You are welcome to hand collect seed for yourself or other project, after we collect for TNC"
Reply to HNPAT with your cell phone number to RSVP and for carpooling possibilities from either Starbucks at Meyerland (on Beechnut) or Krogers at S. Post Oak and W. Bellfort (10306 S Post Oak Rd, 77035). Lan needs to leave Nash around 12:30 at latest, but collectors can stay as long as Susan or someone from TNC is there. When you RSVP, you will get contact phone numbers on event day.
