Starting on June 7th, Citizens for Conservation will be hosting its second season of Interactive Self-Guided Prairie Walks at Flint Creek Savanna, located at CFC’s Headquarters, 459 W. Hwy 22 in Lake Barrington.
The preserve is open free to the public the first Sunday afternoon of each month, June through September, 1:00-4:00 p.m.
The walk on June 7 will feature Shooting Stars on the prairie. Visitors might be surprised to see a Sandhill Crane pair or a beautiful iridescent tree swallow guarding its nesting box.
This is a great time to visit the prairie when the grasses are at medium height and all the wildflowers in bloom can be easily seen.
Be sure to wear good hiking shoes. Bring your cell phone with a Scan app to access the videos by restoration experts along the trail.
Citizens for Conservation’s mission is “Saving Living Space for Living Things” through protection, restoration and stewardship of land, conservation of natural resources, and education. For more information about the work they do, visit their website at CitizensforConservation.org.
