The prairie inspires, rejuvenates, heals, and brings peace and tranquility in so many different forms. Art demonstrations will be on-going all day at the preserve headquarters area from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visit with the artists and become inspired yourself.
Photography talks begin at the barn and will be given at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 1:30 p.m., so if you miss one, you can always catch another session. Take a short hike along the Southwind Nature Trail with the artist as he explains photography techniques. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear for venturing onto the trails, use insect repellent for bugs, and bring along some water. Feel free to bring your own camera and take some beautiful photos of the prairie, then venture back to the barn for a little more in-depth information. Each program runs about 45 minutes. All preserve programs and activities are free and open to the public.
