Discover the wonders of Barrington’s prairie land with Citizens for Conservation’s second season of Self-Guided Prairie Walks at Flint Creek Savannah. The upcoming walk on Sunday, July 5th, will feature wildflowers on the prairie, but don’t be surprised if you spot beautiful birds or colorful insects like this red dragonfly.

Citizens for Conservation’s interactive, self-guided prairie walks will take place 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 from July through September, 1:00-4:00 p.m.

Wildflowers of the prairie are the focus of the July 5th walk because 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.

Visitors might be treated to views of birds like the Purple Martins in their high rise condo on the trail or the Barrington area’s Great White Egret stalking prey in the pond.

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.
