June 2nd Prairie Walk at Garfield Farm
CAMPTON HILLS, IL: Garfield Farm Museum is offering a
two-hour prairie walk on Saturday, June 2nd at 9 am. The tour will be led by
Jerome Johnson, the museum’s biologist.
With the start of summer, the look of the
prairie is beginning to change with all the new growth that has emerged in
the wake of March and April’s prairie burns. The lay of the land, the
historic use of the land over time, plant relationships and climate all have
impacted the plants that survive today at Garfield Farm Museum. Johnson will
bring his knowledge and experience to bear in understanding these complex
relationships. Reservations are required and can be made by contacting
the museum at 630-584-8485 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost for the walk
is $6. Visitors should dress appropriately for the weather.
Garfield Farm Museum’s land preservation agency, the
non-profit Campton Historic Agricultural Lands, has preserved over 381 acres
of land including over 55 acres of managed natural areas. Garfield Farm
Museum is a historically intact former prairie farmstead and teamster inn
being restored by volunteers as a 1840s working farm. The museum is located
5 miles west of Geneva, IL off ILL Rt. 38 on Garfield Road.
