Akin Prairie Wildflower Walk • Douglas County

Sunday, Jun 15th, 2014 @ 1-3pm
1850 N 1150 Rd • Lawrence, KS • Map

Kansas Land Trust marks the 20th anniversary of our first conservation easement with a delightful wildflower walk on intact virgin prairie -- the Akin Prairie Conservation Easement. This 16-acre tract of native prairie, protected in perpetuity from development, memorializes Dorothy Akin and her love of colorful prairie wildflowers. Dorothy’s husband, Tom, and their children donated the conservation easement to KLT in 1994. The Akin Prairie Conservation Easement stands as an enduring testament to the Akin family’s dedication to preserving the beautiful natural features of their land.

The Wildflower Walk is free and open to the public. Families are encouraged to attend. KLT recommends that attendees wear sturdy walking shoes, long pants, insect repellent, and a hat.

Directions from Lawrence: head two miles east of Lawrence on K-10, take the E 1900 Rd exit (Douglas Co. 1057), go south two miles and take a right (west) on N 1150 Road. Signs will guide the way from K-10.
