Kelly Kindscher, ethnobotanist with the Kansas Biological Survey and a founder of the Kansas Land Trust, led a prairie flower walk on the Akin prairie this past Saturday, May 21, starting at 10 AM. The Akin Prairie is located at 1852 North 1000 Road.
(For travel directions: Please travel two miles east of Lawrence on K-10, take the East 1900 Rd (Douglas Co. 1057) exit and travel south two miles to North 1150 Road. Travel west on North 1150 about 0.4 miles.)
This 16-acre tract of native prairie, protected in perpetuity, memorializes Dorothy Akin and her love of prairie wildflowers. Dorothy’s surviving family donated the conservation easement to KLT in 1994. The Akin Prairie serves as an enduring testament to the generous individuals who made this preservation possible. This will be the twenty-third annual wildflower walk on the Akin prairie.
