Prairie Planting & River Clean-Up

June 15, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Take time to take care of the planet and have fun outside with your family planting prairie plants and cleaning up the river!

At this hands-on Inside Out Club event, we will:

  • Learn about the prairie from Dr. Gregory Ruthig, biology professor at North Central College
  • Talk about how The Conservation Foundation helps keep our waterways clean and take time to clean up the river near North Central College’s prairie.

What You Need to Bring

We’ll provide the prairie plants, tools for planting and everything we’ll need to clean up the river. Please wear close-toed shoes and dress for the weather.

Where and When

We’ll meet in the southwest corner of the parking lot outside the football stadium. Please see map below. The event will take place from 10:30-11:30 a.m.

This is a great way to practice gratitude and kindness while caring for our planet!
