Prairie Walk June 26

June 18, 2013

The prairie in Sioux Center is blooming, and several Dordt College professors want to share its beauty with the community and help answer questions like these: What is flowering this month? Why was some of the prairie burned this spring? How are prairies managed? If you find a prairie plant that you think would look perfect at your place, will it grow well in your garden?

This first Prairie Walk of the year will be held Wednesday, June 26, at 7 p.m., beginning at the north end of the Dordt College Soccer Field. Everyone is welcome to come and explore the prairie, and handouts with color photos will be provided to showcase the prairie plants and wildlife.

Additional Prairie Walks will be held each month through October so visitors can see how the habitat changes throughout the summer and autumn.

Contact Dordt College Environmental Studies Professor Dr. Robb De Haan at 722-6220 with any questions. No RSVP is needed.
