Prairie Walk September 11

September 4, 2013

As the state celebrates and honors Iowa Prairie Heritage Week, Dordt College will host the fourth Prairie Walk of the year on Wednesday, September 11, at 7 p.m. The walk begins at the north end of the prairie at the Dordt College Soccer Field.

The lush prairie environment supports a variety of insects, and Dordt professors will be available to help identify species. Visitors are invited to bring an insect net with them if they have one.

A final Prairie Walk will be held in 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. Everyone is welcome to come and explore the prairie, and handouts with color photos showcasing the prairie plants and wildlife will be given to all who attend. No RSVP is needed.
