    Ever wished you could learn a little more about some of the prairie practices used by the Warren County Conservation Board? Do you want to help us preserve our beautiful prairies? Come out to help with the prairie seed harvest!

    You will learn to identify and how to harvest seeds from several prairie plants. Come out to Blue Flag Marsh and take the opportunity to roll your sleeves up, enjoy the beautiful fall weather, and preserve the prairie seeds to be planted somewhere else.

    If you have them, please bring a bucket, hand nippers, and a pair of gloves if you would like, and dress to be amongst the prairie plants! Please register at by October 14th at noon so we can assure we have enough materials. Must have 5 participants to hold this event.
