Prairie Wildlife and Wildflower Adventure, 2 PM – 4 PM, Sunday, April 30, 2023, Ellis County Rural Heritage Farm External Inbox

WAXAHACHIE, TX— Join in the fun on Sunday, April 30, 2023, 2:00-4:00 p.m., at the
Prairie Wildlife and Wildflower Adventure hosted by the Ellis County Rural Heritage Farm
Inc, 130 Cunningham Meadows Road, Waxahachie, TX 75167.

Under the guidance of expert Master Naturalists, learn about plants, trees, animals and birds that call the Texas Blackland Prairie their home. There is no charge for admission or activities.

A particular emphasis this year will be on fun and interactive activities to learn about Blackland Prairie wildflowers, how they benefit us, and how to observe, promote, and protect them. Special emphasis will be on teaching children and other attendees how to identify and appreciate wildflowers and “to celebrate the normalcy that is in their own back yard”, according to Master Naturalist Coordinator Wendy Shappard.

Guided wildflower walks will be available, led by Indian Trail Chapter of the Master Naturalists volunteers. There will also be a “Little Hands on the Farm” activity teaching children about how farms produce the food that we eat and enjoy.

Invite your family and kids and grandkids to enjoy a Sunday Afternoon in the Country. Bring your phone or camera to take photos and post them on your favorite social media site. Come prepared with comfortable walking shoes, hats, and sun protection.

Visit the iNaturalist website, hosted by the Indian Trail Chapter of the Master Naturalists, to see all the beautiful plants and animals that have been observed at the farm:

The mission of the Ellis County Rural Heritage Farm Inc is “to preserve and to promote public awareness and appreciation of the natural and farming heritage of rural Ellis County, Texas”.
