Join us as GHF hosts a wildflower walk led by Rachel Snyder Prairie Land Manager Frank Norman. Snyder Prairie is a 140-acre native and restored prairie and riparian woodland and it is only open to the public a few days each year. This will be the first fall walk held at the prairie in a number of years and it will be a great opportunity to see many of your favorite fall blooming prairie natives. We may even see a few migrating Monarch butterflies.
