Next Platte River Prairies Field Day – August 21

On Friday August 21, we’ll be hosting our next Field Day on the Platte River Prairies.  The agenda is nearly set – we’re just waiting for final confirmation from a few presenters before putting out the official agenda.  We’ll have sessions on plant identification, prairie restoration and management, birds, ethnobotany, pollinators, dragonflies, invertebrate ecology, and more.

Please plan to join us between 9am and 4pm (come and go as you like.)  There is no cost or registration required, but bring your own lunch.  We’ll have some light snacks and water/lemonade for you.  Directions to the site can be found here.

I’ll post the final agenda when it’s ready to go.
