Help Collect Prairie Seed

Help Collect Prairie Seed

Eisenhower families have been invited to participate in a prairie seed collection activity. This will allow the Outdoor Learning Center committee to overseed Eisenhower's prairie area.

The harvest of seeds has been scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 24 from 9-10:30 a.m. at Pioneer Ridge Nature Center. The center is located approximately 11 miles south of Ottumwa on Highway 63.

Eisenhower is in the fifth year of a ten year agreement with the US Fish and Wildlife Service. In the agreement, seed will be provided and the school has made a commitment to care for it.
