Anderson County Prairies Tour • Anderson County

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010 @ 10am-Noon
Welda, KS • Map

The Nature Conservancy’s Anderson County Prairies, located south of Garnett, is a latticework of historic tallgrass prairie of high biological importance and subtle beauty. Anderson County’s deeper soils and higher annual rainfall support plant species more unique and diverse than other tallgrass prairie regions. The Conservancy is offering a walking tour of this tallgrass prairie. The preserve has been the site of ongoing Mead’s Milkweed and grassland bird research by the University of Kansas Biological Survey. The tour guides will be ecologists from the Biological Survey who will discuss the special significance of Anderson County Prairies, the natural history of the plants and animals of the region, and why these prairies are disappearing. Access to Anderson County Prairies is usually limited to researchers. Please join us for this special opportunity. The registration for this tour is $10 for Conservancy members and $15 for non-members. Reservations are required.
