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. This project is a great opportunity to learn more about both our local ecology and our local history. We are continuing the work that we started in June of 2020 and are excited to welcome you back to Black Jack in 2021! 

Late Summer and Fall 2021 to be announced this summer!
