Join The Nature Conservancy and Kansas Biological Survey for prairie restoration workdays that also advance research on the best ways to restore the tallgrass prairie.

Please RSVP by clicking the links below—space and tools for these workdays are limited.

Project Background

KU doctoral student Theo Michaels will lead volunteers in support of her tallgrass prairie restoration research at Anderson County Prairies Preserve. Theo’s research addresses important questions about ecosystem restoration and incorporates care for the entire Anderson County Prairies Preserve. 

We'll meet at the Prairie Spirit Trailhead at 100 Rd & Ranson Avenue in Welda and then carpool to the research site just a few miles away.
