Frank Norman, plant ecologist, botanist, prairie enthusiast, and president of Norman Ecological Consulting, LLC, will present a talk on prairie restoration activities being performed at Snyder Prairie near Mayetta, a 140-acre tract of land owned and managed by Grassland Heritage Foundation. Following his presentation the group will caravan to Snyder Prairie, weather permitting, for refreshments and a tour of this pristine prairie remnant. The group also hopes to plan future meetings at other interesting sites featuring native wildflowers, grasses, and trees in the six-county area.
