PLEASE JOIN US this year for some Fall Seed Collection ….and SAVE THE DATE!!-Nov 4, 2017 Prairie seed planting date at the Town of Verona new site.

Each fall, dozens of volunteers contribute hundreds of hours collecting prairie seeds throughout Dane County incredible park system.  This seed is used to help plant many more acres of prairie in Dane County.

We encourage Town residents to volunteer to help with this in exchange for Parks giving us some seeds for our prairie planting on Nov 4, 2017  after they’re processed.

Sign up  and tell D.C. Parks or the event leader that your are from Verona so we get “credit”.

It’s fun work and you learn a lot about prairie plants!

In addition, SAVE THE DATE —- November 4, 2017 for prairie seed planting at the Town property located at 7669 County Highway PD.

Will need volunteers to help out with this effort.  We are hoping to have two shifts:

one AM and one PM.  (Exact times to be determined.)  There’s been an order placed for a lot of snow this year!!!

Please email tdresser@town.verona.wi.us with your name, phone and email contact information – so that a schedule can be prepared in advance.

We hope to see you in the prairie!
