Seed Cleaning & Packing Pizza Party
Help us kick off the Great Grow Out of 2017!
Katy Prairie Conservancy (KPC) and the Houston Chapter of the Native Prairies Association of Texas (HNPAT) are teaming up to host a seed cleaning & packing party at the January 25th HNPAT monthly meeting. Learn about prairie plants and how to clean seeds from KPC experts. Prairie plant seeds collected from the wild last fall will be packed into envelopes to be distributed to KPC’s Great Grow Out (KatyPrairie.org/GGO) participants.
Information about the Great Growout will be available at the meeting. Seed packers are encouraged to take some seeds home and participate!
Come & eat, make some new friends, support KPC and HNPAT, and pack some seeds! Flyer at this link.
Cost: Free. Refreshments provided. Please register, so we can have a headcount for the food.

- Splitbeard bluestem (Andropogon ternarius) NEW!
