Volunteers will carefully seed a new prairie reconstruction by hand-sowing native wildflower and grass seed at South Washington Conservation Corridor – Ravine Parkway. A portion of this native seed was collected by volunteers last fall from an adjacent and diverse prairie restoration. In this fast developing area, prairie is an ideal habitat; the plants’ deep roots hold soil and filter rainwater before it enters the Mississippi River. We highly recommend volunteers wear boots as conditions here may be muddy.
