Prairie Rescue & Good Food
It’s true! Prairies are hot in the summer, but this season is also one of the best times to see a prairie “in action!” Join INHF and the Polk County Conservation Board as we restore a hidden prairiegem! Complimentary lunch with ice cold drinks to follow.
What: Invasive species eradication from a remnant (unplowed) prairie.
Where: Puccoon Prairie, about 7 miles northeast of Bondurant. Go east off 330/65 onto NE 102nd, and take the first right onto NE 112th St. Travel south 1/2 mile, and we will meet at the entrance gate south of NE 102nd 1/2 mile, on NE 112th St (east side of road).
When: Saturday, August 23rd
Work day: 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. at Puccoon Prairie
Grill out: 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
