Our collection priority is reflected in our Restoration Species target list, which comprises 544 species of vascular plants characteristic of common native habitats in the tallgrass prairie region and are important for habitat restoration work. Our goal is to collect seeds of each species from one population in each of the 12 ecoregions represented in the tallgrass prairie. We are soliciting 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. We also cover shipping costs.
