Citizens for Conservation restoration volunteers have launched their fall seed collecting schedule.

Join them 9 to 11 a.m. Thursdays and Saturdays, and 3:30 to 5 p.m. Sundays. This schedule runs through October.

Volunteers meet at Citizens for Conservation headquarters, 459 W. Route 22, Lake Barrington, the white farmhouse with a silo across from Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital.

Seed collecting can be done by volunteers of all ages and is a great fall family activity. New volunteers are welcome. Seed of a wide variety of native plants is collected, used in CFC preserves in the Barrington area and is shared with many nonprofit organizations for their local restorations.

Questions? Call CFC at (847) 382-7283.
