Sue and Wes Dixon Waterfowl Refuge at Hennepin & Hopper Lakes
Free lunch provided after
Celebrate fall by helping to collect native seed in the Dixon Refuge’s beautiful restored prairies and wetlands. No experience is needed for this fun and easy volunteer activity!
The seed harvested by volunteers will later be cleaned, sorted, and planted over the winter in less diverse areas of the Refuge. This is an important and easy way you can participate in restoration at this Wetland of International Importance!
Bring a water bottle; snacks, tools, and gloves will be provided. Join us for a picnic lunch at the Refuge farmhouse when you’re done harvesting. Please wear appropriate clothing for fieldwork (e.g., long pants, closed-toe shoes). Children 16 years old or younger must be accompanied by parents or other chaperones.
Meet at 9:00 a.m. at the parking lot by the observation tower. Click here for a map and driving directions.
