Making seedballs is a great way for the young naturalists in the Kids On the Land program to learn about seed dispersal. A fourth grader in the KOL program wrote – Mum said – “Get dirty and have fun”. At the end we threw the seedballs in the grass. The birds will eat them and poop. The seeds will grow as flowers.
Many volunteers from all over Texas join Kids On the Land to teach children. Ricky Linex of the Natural Resources Conservation Service works with our students so they can learn to identify native plants and understand their value.
Kids On the Land is a unique STEM Environmental program designed to teach children about the region where they live, connecting them to the land and a more sustainable future.
