Restoration Collection target species lists have been recently updated for the 2020 collecting season!
The Dixon National Tallgrass Prairie Seed Bank collection priorities are reflected in our Restoration Species target list, comprising 545 species characteristic of native habitats in the tallgrass prairie region. The goal is to collect seeds of each species from one population in each of the 12 ecoregions represented in the tallgrass prairie.
We are looking for botanists throughout the Midwest to help us reach our goal! A stipend will be awarded for each collection on the target list made on our behalf and we also cover shipping costs.
