An Evening in the Prairie Walking Tour Series
September 26, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Are you considering converting your land to prairie, but not sure where to start? Our prairie walking tour series is the perfect opportunity to learn more about this vital ecosystem and how to create a beautiful and sustainable prairie landscape on your own property.
Participants will learn about what plants and animals create a thriving prairie ecosystem, prairie management strategies and maintenance schedules, managing drainage and erosion issues, how to create habitat for birds and wildlife, and technical and financial resources available for prairie conversion and restoration.
Experience a prairie throughout the seasons:
Spring Prairie Walk – May 9th, 5-7 pm
Summer Prairie Walk – July 11th, 5-7 pm
Fall Prairie Walk – September 26th, 5-7 pm
You can register for one, two, or all three walking tours!
Attendees will be expected to walk up to one mile. Wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared to stand for longer periods of time (you are welcome to bring a camp chair for your use!). This is a family-friendly event, but please leave the dogs at home. Access to a bathroom will be limited.
Hosted by the Lower St. Croix Watershed Partnership and the Chisago SWCD.
