Black Jack Battlefield Prairie Restoration Project

Join Grassland Heritage Foundation, Native Lands LLC, and Black Jack Battlefield and Nature Park in a prairie restoration project at this National Historic Landmark just outside of Baldwin City, KS. We will be clearing invasive species from the site and collecting seed to restore the prairie's diversity. This project is a great opportunity to learn more about both our local ecology and our local history.
