Help us collect native wildflower and grass seeds that will be replanted to restore native prairie within the park! This is a great activity for the family to enjoy the outdoors together! No experience is necessary and instruction on plant identification will be provided. Meet at the Whitford Lake parking area and we'll take a short walk to our plant propagation area. Please dress to be in an open prairie area and be sure to bring along some water. GPS coordinates: 42.311302, -85.360534
