This year’s event will be held at Ames High School from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Come early to participate in a winter prairie hike at the Pohl State Preserve, and stay for speaker presentations, displays and a silent auction.
The proceeds from this year’s auction will benefit INHF’s Sellberg Property in Story County. The 49-acre pasture is home to several prairie remnants and a portion of West Indian Creek. INHF currently owns the property and is working with Story County Conservation Board to raise funds so the project can one day be open to the public.
The Iowa Prairie Network is an all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of prairie heritage in Iowa. Since 1990, IPN has been a network of advocacy for Iowa’s natural heritage, using its funding to support land acquisition and restoration practices.
