Prairie Planting Workday
November 3, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Come and help the Benedictine sisters care for the earth. Enjoy one of the most pleasurable and meaningful parts of ecological restoration—planting a new prairie. Help plant 99 different kinds of prairie seeds under the guidance of Ron Endres and Greg Armstrong. We will be planting into an old field of grass south of the white house and on an old trail in the North Mendota Wildlife Area. The grasses into which we will be planting are fairly tall, so walking through the grass may be slow. We will be have refreshments and an opportunity to talk with others at a break half-way through the morning. Please come and help us care for the earth.
