The public is invited to participate in a Wildflower Walk on the Akin Prairie at 1 p.m. today. The walk will be led by Kelly Kindscher, plant biologist with Kansas Biological Survey and Kansas Land Trust board member. The prairie is one of the few pristine native prairies remaining in Douglas County.
From Kansas Highway 10 east of Lawrence, turn south on Douglas County 1057, travel two miles, then turn west on 1150 Road, then travel approximately 0.4 miles. A gate to the prairie is on the south side of 1150 Road. KLT signs will be posted. People can park along the side of the road.
The event is free. Bug spray is encouraged.
