August 16, 2020, 4:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Walnut Pond at Prairiewood
Sundays at Walnut Pond are part of the "CoDwelling: Artist Residency & Program Series" project that Prairiewood is hosting at our Walnut Pond site throughout August 2020.
Colorado-based artist Aaron Treher will be adding a sculptural element to an existing structure, designed to attract barn swallow nesting. Outdoor events on Sundays in August will offer families a chance to come observe the project's progress, walk around the Walnut Pond trail, and do some fun, educational nature+art activities!
Sundays at Walnut Pond are happening in conjunction with Open Trails at Prairiewood -- just across the road! Turn at the mailbox marked "1111" for parking or walk the trails from our Open Trails home base at 1484 Wildcat Creek Rd.
August 16, 2020, 4:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Prairiewood
We love sharing our prairie spaces with you, and we want to continue offering community access as we responsibly balance the re-opening of our properties to private guest groups.
Starting in June, we will moved to a new Open Trail Day schedule of EVERY SUNDAY, 4-8PM.
We'll likely be making some updates to our check-in station and procedures as restrictions change, but you can always park by the Blue Sage Barn at 1484 Wildcat Creek Rd., and pick up a trail map from a staff person on site.
Remember to bring water and bug spray with you, as needed. Remember to please leave pets at home.
August 16, 2020, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Bring your outdoor blanket or lawn chair and join us for a panel discussion with regional experts and community members who work and volunteer with birds, pollinators, and their habitats. Limited to 50 participants, we invite you to spread out under our shady canopy of walnut trees and learn more from our panelists.
