Rachel Snyder Prairie • 158th and U Rd. • Mayetta, KS • Map
This annual event is held at the 140-acre Rachel Snyder Prairie southeast of Mayetta, KS and provides everyone with a chance to get "up close and personal" with one our most beautiful and quickly disappearing ecosystems.
This year's celebration is sponsored in part by the Topeka Zoo and will feature a number of great activities including a native plant walk, children's activities, and lunch! The day will end with a walking tour focusing on GHF's restoration work at the prairie.
The entire event is free although an RSVP is requested. It's going to be a great day and we hope everyone can join us!
