July is Grassland Month in Minnesota! If you’re out exploring and find yourself wanting to post your great finds on social media, consider using the hashtag #Discovertheprairie (crafted by the one and only, Phil Doll).
And speaking of social media and outreach, it’s PRAIRIE TUESDAY, which means it’s time for the release of Season 2 of the Prairie Pod. Episode 1, “A lost prairie butterfly gets reintroduced (Dakota Skipper reintroduction at Hole-in-the-Mountain Prairie)” is live now!
