About the event

Visit a 25-year-old restored prairie that was once an old field, as well as some small remnants and oak-hickory woods on 67 acres. Most of the property is Managed Forest Law land with a management plan that supports restoration. There are two small springs and creeks that allow for more plant and animal diversity. We will take an easy walk through the upper and lower prairies, through the woods and along the creek. We expect to seecompass plant, leadplant, yellow and pale purple coneflowers, rattlesnake- master, wild quinine, Michigan liliesand a large variety of other forbs and grasses. We’ll share challenges and happy surprises from the ongoing restoration process, including the discovery of certain species like yellow lady slippers, bottle and cream gentian and yellow pimpernel that were never planted here as well as the existence of many mushroom species.
