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 caravan to the research site just a few miles away.
