KCFP OK’s $14,000 for Prairie Seed Restoration at Freeman Kame Forest Preserve

If you’re a regular reader of Kane County Connects (or an irregular reader, for that matter), you might have noticed a series of stories last fall about the seed harvest, courtesy of Kane County Forest Preserve District Volunteer Coordinator Robb Cleave.

Each year in the fall, seed is harvested from the forest preserves then processed and put back into preserves around the county, for the preservation of the native plants and enjoyment of all. If you’re interested in the program, please contact the volunteer coordinator at 630-762-2741 to RSVP for groups of 10 or more.
