Looking for an outdoor, educational event the whole family can enjoy?
The Parks & Recreation Commission and the Rock County Conservationists invite you to participate in annual prairie seed collection events at Crossridge Park and at Bendlin Prairie at Tower Hill Park.
- Crossridge Park (enter from Brown Drive) - October 15, 10 a.m. to Noon
- Bendlin Prairie at Tower Hill Park (enter from St. Mary Street) - October 22, 10 a.m. to Noon
Participants will help collect prairie seed to plant on their properties or for City staff to plant around the city for beautification and to reduce mowing costs. Dave Bendlin, retired Milton High School teacher, will be on-site to provide instruction during the seed pick. This is a great learning opportunity for community members interested in prairies.
Participants are encouraged to wear long pants and bring garden gloves and snips.
