Come explore the prairies, forests, wetlands, and creek bottoms at Prairie Garden Trust, a beautiful landscape that is actively managed to encourage native biodiversity and beauty. Visits here are always rewarded with interesting birds, plants, insects, and landscapes. We’ll carpool to the site to participate in their regular 9:00 a.m. “Second Saturday” stroll.

PGT is roughly 40 minutes from Columbia. A carpool will leave at 8:15 a.m. from the AC commuter lot southeast of the AC/New Haven bridge over US 63. If you wish to drive separately, see directions on the PGT site and plan to arrive at 9:00 a.m. We will aim to return by 1:00 p.m.

Contact trip leader Lottie Bushmann for more information.
