Fall Flowerbed Maintenance - GPNC • Sedgwick County

Saturday, Oct 14th, 2017 @ 9am-12noon
Great Plains Nature Center • 6232 E. 29th Street North • Wichita, KS • Map

Help is needed for Fall flowerbed cleanup in Parking Lot Garden, and also, at the flowerbed near the entrance of the GPNC Nature Center. We will be removing grasses from around the established native plants in the flowerbeds from 9am till noon. If you can work for even an hour or two it will be appreciated and help get the job done. Come meet other native plant and garden enthusiasts! GPNC will provide a lunch at noon.

Bring your gloves, hat, water and hand tools for removing grasses. RSVP not required but helps with planning - please email

GPNC is located on the Northwest corner of 29th Street and Woodlawn - 240 acres of remnant prairie, wetland, woodland and riparian areas plus a Nature Center and the Owl's Nest Gift Shop - there are 4 ADA trails of different lengths for all ages to enjoy.
