Parade through the Prairie

Thursday, January 13, 2011

This year the O'Brien County Conservation Board is planning a "Parade through the Prairie".

Each month during this year, a special event will be held on a prairie in O'Brien County. The goal of the yearlong celebration is to encourage people to explore this intriguing landscape. Each week a transformation occurs on the land -- colors change, animals migrate, plants burst into bloom.

A wide range of exciting activities is in store.

Thursday, Jan. 20 will be the first of the Prairie Parade events. Join the O'Brien County naturalist at Dog Creek Park for a snowshoe hike. Clear your head after a day at work or school.

Come out to Dog Creek Park for a stomp through the prairie and trees. Meet at the south parking lot at 5:30 p.m.

Snowshoes will be provided if you do not have your own. Please call ahead to be sure that we have enough pairs on hand.

For more information, contact the Prairie Heritage Center at 712-295-7200.
