We’ve finalized the agenda for our next Platte River Prairies Field Day, which will be June 26, 2015.  I hope to see many of you there.  This Field Day will include a wide range of topics including:

– ecology and natural history of stream fish, birds, prairie invertebrates, and reptiles and amphibians

– prairie restoration and management strategies

– plant identification

– ethnobotany (food and medicinal uses of plants)

– use of prairie plants in gardens and landscaping to benefit pollinators

There is no cost for the field day, and you’re welcome to come and go anytime between 9am and 4pm.  A full agenda can be seen here.
