Join the hunt for native species of wildflowers and grasses at Fort Custer! Volunteer Stewards will search a restored prairie to collect seed from native wildflowers, such as black-eyed Susan, bee balm and coneflower. This is a great activity for the family to enjoy the outdoors - no experience is necessary to take part! Please dress to be in an open prairie area. Meet at the park headquarters.
