Come learn about a rare ecosystem and help out at the Native Grasslands Conservancy. Randy Pheobus, director of the Conservancy, will provide us with an introduction to his rare and beautiful meadow restoration work. Native grasses abound in this gorgeous and imperiled habitat.
Tasks will vary based on the site's needs that day but will probably include planting and watering native plants. Randy has an interesting nucleus-style of grouping the plantings.
Bring gloves and water. Tools provided. Head-nets and gloves will be available.
It will be hot and buggy. Dress for ticks. This is not a high-tick environment but they do exist here. It is recommended that you wear pants tucked into light colored socks.
The Conservancy is located next to Button Farm Living History Center.
