Boots On The Ground Conservation

Our mission is to restore and manage native grasslands.

Each year, we make dozens of forays into the wild to gather that most important ingredient, the seeds of native plants. But other interesting things always come along. So check the picking schedule, select some dates, and plan to come. There's no better way to learn about Nature.

The Volunteer Appreciation Lunch will be on Wednesday, October 14 at Hanley Savanna. The festivities will begin at the Park House at 11 am. Hey, you all worked hard and deserve a break.

Thank You !
