Prairie Tuesday (PT) Summer Walks – #1 Prairie Walk 101

June 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

- FREE
Long Lake Regional Park

TUESDAY EVENING walk at Long Lake Regional Park is CANCELLED.

The walk is designed to lift up the native plant and bird relationships – however… Drought has stopped native plant flowering except by deep-rooted Common and Butterfly Milkweed.  Birds are struggling so absent since this year of super dry prairie cannot fulfill their needs. Add long time oppressively high temperatures for humans…
Plan to come next year instead. Thanks!

Four prairies Tuesday evening walks to highlight numerous bird-native plant interactions. All are easy walks unless noted. Bring your binoculars, a 10-power magnifier (or borrow one from Chase) and consider a camera and bug repellent. Wear closed-toe shoes with socks above the ankle. Usually no toilet facilities on site. No registration required.

All trips led by Chase Davies  651-246-9754   [email protected]
