Prairie Walk With Jenny Kendler and Remic Ensweiler

  • Russell R. Kirt Prairie, Parking Lot College 4a 425 Fawell Boulevard Glen Ellyn, IL, 60137 United States (map)

Accompany visiting artist Jenny Kendler and College of DuPage prairie manager Remic Ensweiler on a walk through the college's restored prairie areas. We'll talk about what's native and non-native (and complicate that distinction), what's edible, medicinal and poisonous, and cover some interesting history and ecology of the plants growing in this special area. When less than 0.01% of "The Prairie State's" prairies remain, it's more important than ever to learn about this threatened ecosystem.

This event is free and open to the public.
