Celebrate Woodsy Owl's birthday with us & find out where to hike to see the spectacular array of vibrant fall colors at the USDA Forest Service's Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie! Woodsy Owl says: "Lend a hand, care for the land!" There's no better way to care for the land than learning about the land! We will learn about fall blooms and grass colors on the prairies. What is bottle gentian? How do you tell an aster from a mum? Hear about where to see asters as white as snow and as pink as cotton candy.
