Celebrate the oldest and largest restored prairie in the Twin Cities – Crow-Hassan Park Reserve in Hanover – with a special event on Saturday, September 21st from 10 am – 3 pm.
This event is FREE and will include activities for the whole family. I’ve been wanting to visit this park as it’s unique to the Three Rivers Park District in that it is the only one (as far as I know) that has NO main building (it still has trails, drinking water, toilets, etc.). This looks like a great opportunity to check it out!
Celebrate the oldest and largest restored prairie in the Twin Cities. Participate in guided hikes, wagon rides, telemetry demonstrations, a prairie seed activity and insect studies. Use iNaturalist to record your discoveries and add to the species record for the park. Learn the history of the area and play with historical toys. See the prairie through fresh eyes and try your hand at sketching. Visit with prairie managers and see tools of the trade. Join a guided tour at 2 PM with the hosts of The Wandering Naturalist podcast. Bring a picnic lunch. Drop in anytime at the Riverbend Group Camp.
