Prairie Walk July 24

July 15, 2013

This is typically the most colorful time of the summer for prairies in Iowa, and the Sioux Center prairie is no exception. Dordt College will be hosting the second Prairie Walk of the year on Wednesday, July 24, at 7 p.m.

Dordt professor will point out flowering species (almost all of which are different from those that were flowering during the June Prairie Walk) and answer questions.

The walk begins 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.
