We’re only 8 days away from the start of the Fall Native Plant Sale, Birding & Pollinator Festival!
We’re hoping for beautiful weather!
We now have 4 speakers on our schedule. Chris Wilson, Director of the Audubon Conservation Ranching Program and Jake Davis of Prairiebird Pastures and owner of The Root Cellar, will give a joint talk about their partnership to preserve and improve grasslands and conserve grassland birds. Their efforts give local farmers and ranchers a market-based incentive to provide delicious Audubon Certified Grass-fed Beef. If you are a beef producer, be sure to catch their talk at 9 am. As an added bonus, they will be grilling burgers made from this delicious antibiotic- and hormone-free beef.
Doolittle Gardens and Prairie Hill Farms will be selling a wide variety of native plants. Hummingbird banding will commence at 11 am and kids’ activities will run all day. Four different guided walks will be offered.
