Seed Collection. We will collect native grass seed from the established prairie planting. This seed will be used to over- seed portions of the existing prairie that have been invaded by no-native Kentucky bluegrass. The planned burn will produce a good soil surface for introducing seed from desirable prairie grasses into areas currently dominated by cool-season turf grass. This work will require volunteers to walk through the tall prairie vegetation. We will provide tips for identifying grass species targeted for collection. [Leader: John Besser; jbesser1 at]
