Collecting Seeds For The Future
JOHNSON COUNTY (CBS 2/FOX 28) - Future prairie lands in Johnson County started at F.W. Kent Park Sunday morning.
Volunteers spent the day collecing seeds from native prairie plants, for future plantings.
Johnson County Conservation Manager David Wehde says the seeds will help the county plant more prairie lands in the future, and keep the process growing.
Volunteers were used in the collection to protect the soil in the park, and because the seeds are so small they can not be collected mechanically.
