The Tallgrass Prairie Tour at Guy Denny's on Saturday, July 31, enjoyed a spectacular turnout, was higher than expected. The day's weather was perfect for small groups to experience the 20 acres of prairie forbes and grasses at peak bloom.
We estimate about 70 visitors enjoyed the group leaders' discussions of prairie establishment and management, and history of plant uses by indigenous people and early settlers.
Over four hours, tours were led by Guy, Dick Moseley, Jennifer Windus, and John Watts. Stewardship assistants Lydia and Makaila and board member Jim Mason helped with ONAPA displays and materials.
