Saturday, Nov 7th, 2015 @ 10am-3:30pm
Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve • Strong City, KS • Map
Volunteer workers are needed to help The Nature Conservancy and the National Park Service with prairie restoration at Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. The work will consist of planting 1,000-2,000 wildflower plants. The project will further our restoration efforts at the Bottomland Trail area and help improve wildflower diversity and pollinator habitat on the preserve. This is part of a larger U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service/National Park Service/Nature Conservancy project to create and improve pollinator habitat in the Fox Creek bottomland fields.
Suggested attire includes comfortable boots or shoes, long pants, gloves, and a hat. You may want to bring a spade and/or trowel, water, and snacks. Pack a lunch if you plan on helping the whole day.
Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve is located two miles north of Strong City, Kansas. Volunteers are asked to RSVP by calling Ruth Palmer at 785-233-4400 or email email@example.com.
