Event Date: 2022-10-15 10:00 am

New Canadian Centre (NCC) Clients — You can help gather seeds from an endangered ecosystem for future replanting!

Kawartha Land Trust, Diverse Nature Collective & the New Canadians Centre (NCC) invite NCC clients for a fun fall day of collecting seeds from one of the rarest ecosystems in Canada — the tallgrass prairie!

Open to any age, you and your family can explore the trails and take an active role in restoring these critical habitats with Kawartha Land Trust.

Please note that it will require a short hike of around 1km down and up hills to reach the prairie. Volunteers are encouraged to bring garden/work gloves, outdoors wear, water and snacks for the day.
