Lebanon Hills Regional Park - 12.12 - 14: Parks and Pints - Seed Cleaning Nights


General Description

It has been a busy fall season collecting seeds from our native prairies and now we need your help to prep and clean the seed for next year’s growing season. This can be repetitive work, so what better way to clean seed than with a beer (or wine or seltzer or soda) in hand to further enjoy the process?


We will throw in some peanuts and other bar snacks for you to shuck and enjoy as you shuck away at collecting seeds. If you remember the days of Parks and Pints (seems so long ago now), this opportunity is right up your alley.
