Seed Collecting

Seed collecting trips are scheduled throughout the year, but mostly in fall. To be placed on KPC's seed collecting email list, please contact Lan Shen at

Please join Lan and enjoy mornings on the prairie, while collecting seeds of native prairie plants for use in the Coastal Prairie Seed Increase Program, restoration projects, city pocket prairies, and the Great Grow Out. No experience necessary.  Collectors are very welcome to take some seeds home to grow or share with friends; volunteers collecting for other organizations are also welcome.
