[ARCHIVED] Crossridge Park Prairie Seed Collection Scheduled for October 15th

Crossridge Park Flowers

The City of Milton’s Parks & Recreation Commission will be hosting the Crossridge Park Annual Prairie Seed Collection on October 15, 2016 from 10 a.m. to Noon. Participants can enter Crossridge Park from Parkview Drive or Brown Drive.

The Parks & Recreation Commission has been working for over a decade to develop the prairie at Crossridge Park. The prairie seed collected will be utilized at Crossridge Park and in various locations throughout the City to reduce mowing costs. The prairie grasses and flowers also create a beautiful, natural landscape with plants native to Wisconsin. Those who participate can also take seed home for use on their own property.

Seed collection is typically done by hand, but some people find scissors/snips helpful. Wear clothes that are appropriate for walking in tall grasses and dress for the weather. Garden or leather gloves are helpful when collecting the seed. Also consider bringing sunscreen and a bottle of water.

For additional information contact Inga Cushman, Assistant to the City Administrator, at (608) 868-6900 ext. 5 or by e-mail at icushman@milton-wi.gov.
