AT THE PARK Creative Nature Series Flowers of the Prairie

Oakland Mills Nature Center, Henry County

Sunday, September 16, 2018

Flowers of the Prairie, by Dr. Danuta Hutchins, retired college professor. From the Humanities, Iowa, website: “With a copy of the ‘Prairie and Woodland Flowers Coloring Book’ as reference, this presentation identifies prairie wildflowers, their common English names and Linnaeus-based classification in Latin. It informs when they blossom, where they grow and what medicinal and food uses have they served during the times of early pioneers and Native American Peoples.” We will carpool to Prairie Ridge, one mile from Oakland Mills, to use her “hands-on” component of drawing/coloring images of those flowers. Bring sketching paper, No. 2 pencils, and colored pencils, if you have them. This program is being funded by Humanities, Iowa and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Preregistration is appreciated, but not necessary. Free program.
