Akin Prairie Wildflower Walk • Douglas County

Wednesday, Jun 23rd, 2010 @ 7pm
Lawrence, KS • Map

Led by Kelly Kindscher. The wildflower walk will take place at the very first conservation easement established in the state of Kansas. The Akin Prairie provides a wonderful setting to identify prairie grasses and wildflowers and to hear the interesting lore surrounding them. This splendid 16-acre tract of native prairie has been protected as a memorial to Dorothy Akin and her love of colorful prairie wildflowers. This walk is free and open to the public. Families are encouraged to attend. Directions: 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.
