About the Event

National Public Lands Day

Osborne Prairie Tour

Saturday, September 23rd, 2023 10:00 AM

Come celebrate National Public Lands Day with a tour of Osborne Park's tallgrass prairies!

This walk of about 1.5 miles, leaving from the Osborne Pond, will tour through reconstructed prairies ranging from just two years old to over a decade, and even a few small remnant parcels. It allows the perfect opportunity to discuss the shifting landscape of prairie conservation, reconstruction, and management. A few late-season blooms will still be on display, with ample opportunities to collect seed for your own little pocket prairie project!

Participants are encouraged to wear long pants and comfortable close-toed shoes for meanders into the taller vegetation in search of interesting finds.

Sign up online at https://www.claytoncountyconservation.org/upcoming-events  or by calling (563) 245-1516.  The Osborne Pond is located on HWY 13 four miles south of Elkader. The nature center is open from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday-Saturday & Noon – 4:00 PM Sunday.
