North Branch Seed Garden CANCELLED

November 21 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Seeds are essential in restoring healthy native ecosystems. Not just any seeds, but those from local descendants of plants that have prospered here for thousands of years and which are adapted to local conditions.

We carefully harvest seeds from those local plants, gather them into mixes and spread them into management sites to restore the understory.  The results of our efforts are evident in vibrant woodlands and prairies along the North Branch of the Chicago River.

Please contact us at with any questions.

Directions: Enter the Forest Preserve Maintenance driveway from Harts Road,  just west of Touhy and Caldwell. Take an immediate right turn into a small gravel parking area. The address is 6649 W Harts Road in Niles, IL.
