Join us this Friday, June 9, at 4 pm to enjoy the tallgrass prairie in bloom and celebrate the expansion of Irvine Prairie near Dysart. Our celebration will include representatives of the University of Northern Iowa, the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, the Tallgrass Prairie Center and some special guests. Guided prairie walks will be offered. Comfortable walking shoes are encouraged and attendees are welcome to bring folding chairs.
Thanks to a generous gift from Cathy Irvine to the UNI Foundation, Irvine Prairie will expand from its original 77 acres to almost 300 acres.
Irvine Prairie is located at 1174 55th St. Dysart. Search for Irvine Prairie on Google maps, or visit this link.
