13th Annual Prairie BioBlitz

Join biologists, volunteer naturalists, and other prairie enthusiasts at Missouri Prairie Foundation’s 302-acre Shelton L. Cook Memorial Meadow in Golden City, MO to celebrate National Prairie Day (June 1), founded by the Missouri Prairie Foundation, and help biologists inventory plants, birds, butterflies, native bees, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and more.

The weekend will also feature a potluck dinner with a fish fry, an after-dinner presentation on Dark Skies, nocturnal insect observations, stargazing, and free tent camping. Activities continue through noon on Sunday.

Participants may enjoy an afternoon or morning of activities or stay for the whole weekend. An interest in nature is all that is required to attend.

The event is free of charge, but attendees must register for Prairie BioBlitz activities for planning purposes and to reserve a spot in field study groups, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
