Evening walk on the prairie

Join Dr. Thomas Rosburg on monthly prairie walks at the largest prairie remnant in Story County — Doolittle Prairie. This series will take place on the third Tuesday of each month, through September, with the first one kicking off on Tuesday, May 16 at 7 p.m.

See rare and common prairie flora that change each month, and learn about the history and ecology of Central Iowa prairies. Long pants, long sleeves, sturdy/closed-toe shoes, and bug spray are recommended. Poison ivy is present in some areas. You may also want sunscreen, a hat, and something to drink. These walks are free, but registration is encouraged by the day prior to each walk. We will be contacting you the day of the walk if there is inclement weather.

Register online here.
