Nature Tourism

Preserve Our Prairie Home-
March 25th

We hosted Jarid Manos, founder and Director of the Great Plains Restoration Council and his new assistant on a tour of significant bird and wildlife habitat and nature education sites in Foard and Knox Counties. I’m always refreshed and recommitted after seeing how these folks, and our other urban neighbors, seem to value this beautiful place we live in, often it seems more than we do. GPRC has committed to sponsoring our Real Rural Tourism Symposium, June 26, 27, 28. Jarid will also share the stories of the Prairie Park put together and maintained for public use by this small private non-profit, successfully saving the last of the native mid & tall grass prairie of the region. GPRC will also be hosting with a Youth Summit for disadvantaged urban and reservation children on the Corps of Engineers property in July with tours into Knox County.
