Spend an autumn morning exploring Paw Paw Prairie Fen Preserve with our team! While there are several types of fens, prairie fens are particularly unique, providing habitat for rare wetland and prairie plants. Explore the landscape on this guided hike (with donuts!) —the sway of grasses, soaring raptors, and sweet autumn air create an idyllic setting to spend your morning.
