Sunday, Sep 23rd, 2012 @ 9am
South Greenwich Rd & East 70th Street • Oxford, KS • Map
This unique area consists of 927 acres consisting of prairie uplands, riparian habitat, and wetlands. We will tour a 20 acre prairie site that was burned this spring. It is located north and west of the private residence on the west side of Greenwich Road. After touring the prairie we will visit some wetland locations. Gene Young of Northern Oklahoma College will tell us more about history of the area and show us around. He has been studying the flora and fauna of the wetlands since the 1980s. We will meet in Winfield at the Southwestern College parking lot on Fowler Avenue at 9am and caravan to the site. You can also meet us at the site. This is one of four tours as part of the 2012 Annual Wildflower Weekend.
