Prairie Trek a Real Treat

The July Member Meeting last Sunday was a special tour of the Plains Conservation Center Short-grass Prairie. With an early start, participants had a full day to get to know the high plains short grass ecosystem. Susan Fisher tells us:

"What a trip. The flowers were beautiful: Bush Morning Glory and the white Evening Star are pictured below. We learned about the KT Event - very interesting, had a terrific lunch under the shade of cottonwoods and greeted bison (lot's of 'em) from our open air range wagon."

Susan shares some pix she took along the way.

Orientation and history start the day at 8:30 AM!!
