PGT Visitors on Magnificent Days

The past two days brought the most perfect, sunny, comfortable weather I’ve ever seen for a Missouri June. So we were incredibly fortunate to also have three groups visiting the PGT then. On Friday June 7, the Runge CAMP F.I.R.E. kids took a hike to learn about prairie and also explore Hillers Creek. They’ll be sending some of their own photos later, but I took this one as they gathered before heading afield.

Then last night the Callaway County Master Gardeners came for a stroll past prairie, to the lotus ponds and around Beaver Lake. Several of the group plan to come back on their own for birds, flowers and just being in nature—a happy surprise to find the PGT so close to their Fulton and other nearby homes.

Today, Barb Miltenberger brought coworkers and their families out to explore the PGT.

Once there, we explored the 360 million year old coral reef—and of course the frogs, crayfish, minnows and other stream life.kids-in-creek-6-8-13

About Lorna Domke

Since 1981, I've lived on the land that surrounds, and will eventually be integrated into, the Prairie Garden Trust with my husband, Henry. Our long-term goal is to build on what Henry's parents began and create a nature garden of sorts for others to enjoy. Over the years I've planted prairie, mowed trails, created a website and done whatever I could to enhance what's here. For a few years I served on the board of the Missouri Prairie Foundation. Since I retired from my role as Outreach & Education Division Chief at the Missouri Dept. of Conservation in 2010, I've started to put more time into the PGT. The PGT Nature Garden blog is one result.
