Prairie Seeds

Planting your own plot of Conway Prairie will provide food for pollinators and soak up rainwater before it runs off. We gave away lots of seed packs at Conway EcoFest 2015; if you didn’t get one and would like one, contact us.
This page will document the development of the seeds as they germinate and grow.

Here is the list of species in the packet. Follow the links to see images of seeds and adult plants in flower.
