Prairiewoods Grand Prairie Picnic & Field Day
- 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. -
- All Ages
Join us for a celebration of everything we’ve co-created with nature on the land at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha)! The day will include games and activities for the whole family, as well as the opportunity to browse through a time line of Prairiewoods land care. Check out our edible landscaping in the Garden of Eat’n, our Healing Garden and the Green Prairie Garden, which provides fresh, organic produce to the Metro Catholic Outreach food pantry. Learn more about how we’ve responded to the devastation of last year’s derecho; enjoy our groomed walking trails, outdoor labyrinth and Cosmic Walk; and participate in field day activities for all ages, featuring our community partnerships with a number of area organizations, including Trees Forever, Backyard Abundance, the City of Cedar Rapids Stormwater Division, Green Iowa AmeriCorps, I-Renew and Metro Catholic Outreach. This event is free, or you may choose to add lunch for $8. You are also welcome to bring your own lunch. Registration is appreciated for the event and required for lunch.
