Join Emily Meyer, Program Manager, as she explores the birth, growth and changes undertaken by The Prairie Nature Center during the last 34 years. This gem located on the Ohio State Marion campus was started by a small and highly dedicated group of people in 1977 and has changed quite a bit since then. Today, 11 acres of restored tall grass prairie are a showpiece on the campus and an attraction for the surrounding communities.
Highlights will include an overview of research conducted on site, expansion planning, and a discussion about where the nature center is headed in the future. Please join us for the discussion of The Prairie Nature Center, where we've been connecting the community with tall grass prairies since 1977.
