Prairie Restoration Volunteer Workday!

Friday, Sept. 30, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Hopkins Hollow prairie restoration site, 4550 N. 35th St.


Photo of prairie hikers in Hopkins HollowMaster Naturalist Mars Patterson calls on you to choose your adventure: shovel, saw, pruners or digging by hand trowel.  This past summer, Nearby Nature hired three  interns to begin a prairie restoration project in Hopkins Hollow. They made great strides, but there is much to do to prepare the site for winter and get it ready for spring planting.

We're calling on all our friends to come out and spend a nice autumn day with us, learn about prairie restoration and get lots of work done.  We hope to see you there! Let us know you're coming. Sign up at this link and Nearby Nature will send you a reminder. Note, this location is different from our frequent meeting spot at the trail head.  Here is a Google Map link to 4450 N 35th St.
