The program is free and open to the public. The theme of the hike is how to build a prairie. A naturalist will discuss management and restoration techniques and will explain how the refuge is bringing back the tallgrass prairie. Participants will be provided a tour of the refuge’s seed laboratory, greenhouse and reconstructed prairie.

Register for the hike by contacting Michelle Garcia at michelle_garcia@fws.gov or (515) 994-3400.
