Moonlight Seed Harvest
Polk County Conservation and the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation welcome you to our annual fall harvest event! Staff and volunteers will collect native prairie seed to diversify and expand the prairie under the setting sun and rising Hunter’s Moon. This year, we invite volunteers to gather before the harvest for a shared meal and storytelling from Iowa’s Indigenous People that, both historically and currently, thrive on this land and are an important part of our regional heritage.
Following the harvest, we’ll come together around a campfire to enjoy s’mores and celebrate autumn in good company under the full moon.
* It is recommended to bring a headlamp or flashlight for this event.
