Many Folks Spent the day with the Goose Lake
in the Prairie Grove Picnic Area
September 17th, 2022 from 10 AM to 3 PM
Many brought lawn chairs and blankets and set up in the grass.
The Gift Shop and the Food Shop served Hamburgers, Brats and Hot Dogs with chips, sodas & cookies in the North Shelter. The Cragg Cabin door was open.
Here you see a few photos from the event taken by Partner Nancy Mattson.
Chris Danek, Prairie Partner's own interpreter, explains the plants, flowers especially, and points out special areas in the park on our wagon rides. There are four which are fit in very tightly to the schedule. Should you be interested in a private ride at the park, call the park number and we will see if we can do a ride on a Saturday or Sunday for your group.
Mr. Extrodinare Tom Kaluzny served
as Cook for the occassion.
Everyone enjoyed his great sandwiches!
