Quick Field Day Note

The forecast calls for a 50% chance of rain for our Field Day tomorrow.  We’re not scared.

If it rains hard, or if there’s lightning, we’ve got plenty of room in the house and the shop down the hill to go ahead with our planned sessions.  We’ll go out in the rain for you and bring plants inside to identify, and we can talk about prairie restoration by looking through the equipment we use to harvest, dry, clean, and store seed.  And during breaks in the rain, we’ll go hike.  Or we can have hikes for those who don’t mind a little rain and indoor sessions for everyone else.

Regardless, come hang out with us.  We’ll make it worth your while.

  1. Gosh, what a lovely invitation — I wish I could walk in the rain on the prairie instead of suffering through another day in the California drought. Have fun, all!
