PLANTING YOUR OWN PRAIRIE
Museum of the Grand Prairie, Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve, 12:30-2 p.m.
Once covering almost 40 percent of the United States, native prairie is today one of the most endangered ecosystems in the world. By growing native prairie plants, children can help re-create food and habitat for the many birds, butterflies, and other animals that depend on them. Children will plant a variety of grasses and flowers that can be taken home to bloom and flourish. $5 per person. Registration required: ccfpd.org, (217) 586-2612 or planted@ccfpd.org.
