Explore the prairie areas Des Moines Parks and Recreation has created using native Iowa species of plants. Participants will learn about some of the plants, walk into the prairie and help harvest seeds. We will look for native plant seeds that can be used for future plantings.

Butterfly nets and tags will also be available to catch, tag and release any Monarch butterflies we find.
