Native Medicinal Plants & Wildflower Walk • Douglas County

Saturday, May 11th, 2013 @ 10am-no
1865 E 1600 Road • Lawrence, KS • Map

Tour the KU Medicinal Plant Research Garden and Rockefeller Prairie, all part of the KU Field Station. The University of Kansas Field Station is located about 20 minutes north of downtown Lawrence. The prairies, forests, wetlands, ponds, laboratories, gardens, and large-scale field studies on field station lands provide the platform for research and education programs. Former KNPS President and curator of the RL McGregor Herbarium, Craig Freeman, PhD will be our leader, accompanied by staff biologist and Assoc. Director for Outreach, Scott Campbell. [This tour is only open to KNPS members & Miami Co. Master Gardeners]

We will meet at the site, AT 10 AM SHARP! In general, if driving to Lawrence via I-70, take the East Lawrence exit and turn east on 24/40. Drive past the airport and look for the green Field Station sign at 1600 Road. Turn left and park by the Medicinal Garden. After this tour, we will drive 1 miles north to the nature trail area to enjoy the spring wildflowers at the Rockefeller Native Prairie.
