Ernie Miller workday

February 21, 2008

Interested groups and individuals are invited to assist with prairie restoration efforts at a small prairie remnant at Ernie Miller Park during two spring workdays planned in conjunction with Kansas City WildLands, a local conservation coalition. A workday on Saturday will focus on prairie restoration, while a workday on May 3 will also involve the planting of prairie species.

These are great opportunities to help with hands-on conservation work on the metro area's dwindling wild acres.

Saturday's workday will be from 1 to 4 pm. at Ernie Miller Park, 909 N. Kansas Highway 7, Olathe.

Participants should dress for the weather - long pants are suggested. KC WildLands will supply work gloves and drinking water. Some tools will be provided on-site, but participants are encouraged to bring their own loppers, small saws, and hand shovels.

For more information or to register for either workday, call KC WildLands Coordinator Linda Lehrbaum or email
