Seed storage and processing at Midewin Tallgrass Prairie

Once seed is collected and cleaned it is stored in a huge outdoor cooler. The seed is stored at 38 degrees Fahrenheit .  The seed is sorted from where is was collected ( wild, reconstruction, cultivated). Later on , right now as I type , the seed is mixed based on the site and habitat.  This year Midewin has 15 sites the seed is going to.
