Usually, you will want to harvest the seeds out of the cone, but if this was already open when you found it, then there are no seeds likely left in there. You should be able to see some if you pick apart the scales of the cone, if there are still seeds inside.

This article will help you grow these if you find that you do have some viable seeds that come up: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/cypress/bald-cypress-information.htm
