Seed gathering: Wachiska Audubon of Lincoln needs help at 1 p.m. today harvesting seeds from thickspike gayfeather — common names for the plant are prairie blazing star, tall blazing star or Kansas gayfeather. The harvested seed and chaff will be taken to Stock Seed Farm near Murdock, Neb., for cleaning. Wachiska receives $50 a pound for the seed. The group has received as much as $5,275 for an afternoon’s harvest. To reach the harvest area, drive west on Lincoln’s O Street (U.S. Highway 6) to the Pleasant Dale Cemetery, which is six miles west of Emerald or one mile past the roundabout. Turn right (north) on West 168th Street and drive about halfway down the hill. Turn left (west) onto the lane by a blue 915 sign. Bring leather gloves, if possible, to protect the hands while working, and 5-gallon buckets if you have them. Water and soft drinks will be available.
