8:00am - 2:15pm  Prairie Fest Day Camp
We have a full day of activites for kids who love nature, or just want to learn more about it! While the adults have their time, we will have youth workshops of all kinds to entertain the kids. We will re-connect the the adults multiple times for tours and lunch, but for the most part kids will be outside!! This is a great opportunity for kids to have fun outdoors and connect with nature.

Attention Vendors!! Prairie Fest 2016 will be focused on education. In past years we have had vendors of various items relating to the prairie and nature. However this year we will only be hosting presenters. There will be an opportunity for groups to set up information tables, but there will be no sales at these tables.

Please contact us if you have any questions!
