Join staff from the Office of Sustainability and Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences on Tuesday, August 17th, 8:45-10:45 AM for a tour of the UI Ashton Cross Country Prairie Restoration project. See prairie wildflowers and native pollinators on the UI campus!  Join prairie specialists and fellow Hawkeyes for a tour of a newly reconstructed prairie.  Learn how the UI campus is becoming more sustainable and environmentally friendly.  Staff members from the Office of Sustainability and the Environment will help you download and use iNaturalist, a powerful and useful plant identification app.

Please meet at the Cambus stop adjacent Schaeffer Hall on the Pentacrest. We will ride a Cambus to the Prairie Restoration Project (adjacent the Hawkeye Commuter & Storage Lot). At the end of tour, students will ride the Cambus back to the Cambus stop adjacent Schaeffer Hall.

This event is part of the University's On Iowa! programming.  New students are welcome and encouraged to attend.
