Native Public Lands Day Osborne Prairie Tour
Come celebrate National Public Lands Day with a tour of Osborne Park’s tallgrass prairies!
The Native Public Lands Day Osborne Prairie Tour is taking place on Saturday, September 23rd 10 am at the Osborne Pond near Elkader.
This walk of about 1.5 miles will tour through reconstructed prairies ranging from just two years old to over a decade, and even a few small remnant parcels. It allows the perfect opportunity to discuss the shifting landscape of prairie conservation, reconstruction, and management. A few late-season blooms will still be on display, with ample opportunities to collect seed for your own little pocket prairie project!
Participants are encouraged to wear long pants and comfortable close-toed shoes for meanders into the taller vegetation in search of interesting finds.
