Join Lael Neal, a Polk County Conservation Natural Resources Technician and prairie expert, on a guided prairie hike. Lael will discuss the prairie ecosystem, help you identify common prairie species, and lead you on a relaxing hike through the prairie at the beautiful Chichaqua Bottoms Greenbelt.
After the hike we will gather at *Reclaimed Rails Brewery in Bondurant to learn the art of painting with wool! Join us as Megan Hammer of Art Grows Wild shares her needle-felting technique that uses only wool and a needle to create beautiful and unique pieces of art. You will create a 4”x 6” frameable piece. No experience necessary; all confidence levels are welcome! Megan will have inspiration pieces to guide you in creating popular wildflowers,or you can use a picture from the hike! All supplies are included.
*The drive from Chichaqua Bottoms to Reclaimed Rails is about 10 miles
