Description

Get your camera ready and join us for trek through the prairie while being surrounded by a variety of beautiful butterflies. Look forward to a fun and educational day outdoors at Tallgrass Prairie Preserve! Participants should bring their camera, a tripod if available, sturdy hiking shoes and insect repellant.

The Joseph H. Williams Tallgrass Prairie Preserve is the largest (39,000 acres) protected remnant of tallgrass prairie left on earth. Originally spanning portions of 14 states from Texas to Minnesota, urban sprawl and conversion to cropland have left less than 10% of this magnificent American landscape. Since 1989, the Conservancy has proven successful at restoring this fully-functioning portion of the tallgrass prairie ecosystem with the use of about 2500 free-roaming bison and a "patch-burn" model approach to prescribed burning.

Registration is required. Space is limited.
