About the Event

Join  us on the second Tuesday of each month as we Walk with an Eco-Ologist  at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha)! Each program will  give you the opportunity to learn from a local ‘ologist and dive deeper  into specific topics within the field of ecology. Come prepared to walk  our trails and, depending on the topic, get a little dirty to get better  acquainted with some of our plant and animal kin. We are excited to  offer seven programs starting in April on the following topics:  raptology (birds of prey), agronomy (farming), lepidopterology  (butterflies and moths), wild ethnobotany (wild edibles and medicines),  ornithology (birds), entomology (bugs) and dendrology (trees).

In  July, join Mandy Dickerson of Backyard Abundance and herbalist at  Plantchanters Garden on a joyful ramble along the trail and sunny edges.  Get to know some of the remarkable plant allies we have in our  bioregion and discover how their phytochemical potency has been  recognized and interwoven into diverse traditions as flavor and  medicine.

If  you have binoculars, a camera with zoom or a butterfly net, feel free  to bring them. The cost is $20 per session, and registration is  required.


This class was developed in collaboration with many community partners using grant funding from the Johnson County Community Foundation and the Roy A. Hunt Foundation. It would not be possible without these sponsors and supporters. Please frequent these generous organizations to thank them for donations of time, materials and funds.
