National Public Lands Day – Osborne Park’s tallgrass prairies
Come celebrate National Public Lands Day with a tour of Osborne Park’s tallgrass prairies!
This walk of about 1.5 miles will tour through reconstructed prairies ranging from just two years old to over a decade, and even a few small remnant parcels. It allows the perfect opportunity to discuss the shifting landscape of prairie conservation, reconstruction, and management. A few late-season blooms will still be on display, with ample opportunities to collect seed for your own little pocket prairie project!
Participants are encouraged to wear long pants and comfortable close-toed shoes for meanders into the taller vegetation in search of interesting finds
