This annual event is held at the 140-acre Rachel Snyder Prairie southeast of Mayetta, KS and provides everyone with a chance to get "up close and personal" with one our most beautiful and quickly disappearing ecosystems.

This year's celebration is sponsored in part by the Topeka Zoo and will feature a number of great activities including a native plant walk, children's activities, and lunch! The day will end with a walking tour focusing on GHF's restoration work at the prairie.
