The dedication of the recent preservation of the Paintbrush Prairie takes place on Saturday, June 16, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. Participants will be guided on a prairie wildflower walk.
The Paintbrush Prairie provides a splendid setting to identify prairie grasses and wildflowers and to learn about the cultural lore about individual plants. This 77-acre tract of native prairie, protected in perpetuity, features Mead’s milkweed, a federally listed threatened species.
