Powell Gardens’ Native Prairie Series: Tallgrass Prairies

May 10, 2022 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM CDT

Ona Gieschen’s Native Prairie, located just outside of Sedalia, Missouri, is owned and managed by Powell Gardens. The Native Prairie Series, a series of workshops taught at Ona’s Prairie by staff Conservationist Julie Copley, aims to provide participants valuable perspective on this critical Midwest ecosystem.

Each workshop will highlight topics surrounding the tallgrass prairie such as biodiversity, management, and conservation, as well as include a discussion of the highlighted prairie plant species for additional community context.

In the first workshop, participants will receive an introduction to tallgrass prairies, including ecological perspectives and distinction amidst other grassland types.

Additionally, identification of the major plant families found in this ecosystem as well as techniques for plant identification will be presented. The plant of focus for this class is Painted Cup (Castilleja coccinea.)

Participants can sign up for all three classes in the series or select individual classes based on the topics presented.
