About the Event

Join Clayton County Conservation for a National Public Lands Day celebration on Saturday, September 26th, at 9:00 AM. Participants will get up close and personal with the restored prairie at Osborne learning about the fascinating adaptations plants use to make the next generation, the importance of “local ecotypes” in prairie reconstruction, and of course, gather some seed to help Clayton County Conservation’s restoration efforts!   All ages are welcome at the event, but children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Gloves and seed containers will be available. Participants are urged to bring their own water bottle, along with comfortable shoes, pants, and long sleeves. Masks are highly encouraged. Meet at the Osborne Pond parking area.
