Oak Savanna Day

Date: 
Saturday, July 22, 2017

Are you interested in learning more about one of America’s most threatened ecosystems? This afternoon event will take you on an adventure through our restored oak savannas. At 1pm, there will be a short presentation on oak savannas and why they are special. At 1:30pm and 2:45pm, tours to observe the red-headed woodpeckers and other oak savanna specialist species will depart the Lindeman Center. Simultaneously, representatives from North Star Bison will be on hand in the Lindeman Center to talk and answer questions about our plans to bring bison to our oak savannas for a few months each year. We’ll also discuss the role of fire and prescribed burning on these unusual and declining ecosystems. Join us for both parts of this special event!

 

1pm - 4pm
