Irwin Prairie State Nature Preserve

Regular workdays with Todd Crail and his students from UT at this state nature preserve  will be updated for 2017 as soon as we receive the information!

There’s usually an educational nature hike as a nice break from removing the invasive buckthorn.  No experience is necessary and all are welcome.  It’s good for the students to realize the wider community is interested in helping with this work. Come and go as you please.

Kitty Todd Nature Preserve

The regular work days at Kitty Todd will  be updated as soon as I find out the regular dates for 2017!
