Help us put out old boardwalk to good use by re-purposing it into your very own prairie butterfly garden bed.  Come learn why native plants are a must for any landscape design.  Then you’ll assemble a raised bed to take home.  Each raised bed will come with all the hardware and a coupon for 10 native prairie plants.  Plants will be picked up at HWR later in the spring.  Bring a cordless drill if you have one.

This event is part of our Pollinator Initiative where we are increasing their awareness through public programs, outreach, and citizen science.  Heckrodt will be hosting specific programs this year that encourages pollinator friendly habitat, human and pollinator interaction, pollinator citizen science opportunities. 

Participants will also learn how to plant natives.  We’ll head over to the Heckrodt Prairie and plant numerous pollinator friendly plants.
