One thought on “Native Links, Sources and Destinations

  1. Hi Marc, Great too see your Site and the interesting projects you are doing there in the Cajun Prairie. I met Louis Vidrine at a recent prairie conference and really enjoyed his wonderful book. Thank you very much for showing photos of our Hand Held Seed Harvester with Gaillardia seed! Just wondering if you might be able to list us in your “Links/Sources ” section? We have quite a few folks there who are collecting native seeds with our equipment. Hope to attend one of the coastal prairie conferences in the near future. Which one might you suggest? Anyway keep up the great work there and happy harvesting!!
