This will be a short exploration into some the native prairie areas that Des Moines Parks and Recreation have created in the parks system.  Participants will learn about some of the plants, physically go in the prairie and then help with seed harvesting from the plants that are growing there.  We will look for seed sources that are specific to attracting butterflies as well as other seeds that can be harvested to use in future prairie plantings.
