Prairies: Blazing with Life at Cedarburg Public Library

Thursday, July 18, 2024 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Did you know that Wisconsin once had over 2 million acres of majestic wind-swept tallgrass prairie? Colorful and diverse, the original prairies of Wisconsin gave way to European settlement, farming and eventually cities. Prairie soils are rich in nutrients and many feet deep and can range from wet to dry. These soils provided great farmland, lending credence to our motto of “America’s Dairyland.” We will learn about some of the many species of plants and animals that live in prairies. These rare communities are home to sunflowers, bluestem grass and myriad bees and butterflies. 

Event is FREE and open to adults.
