Walk: Bugs. Birds and the Prairie Plants They Love—-
Join Roger Sanderson for an early morning stroll around Harry Moss Park observing life on the small prairie—birds, bugs and native plants. We will identify visitors and inhabitants and their roles that make them key components of the living prairie.
Meet at Harry Moss Park at 8 AM on Arborside (east side of the Park) near the Harry Moss Park signage and trek on at 8:15. Bring binoculars if you desire and wear good walking shoes.
