This summer, STPS Director Dr. EJ Neafsey lead a group of students from the Oak Park Summer Program through Wolf Road Prairie. EJ was able to talk about natural history and ecology in the beautiful setting of the summer prairie. The group’s leader, Stephanie Kirchner, had this to say about the tour:
The day was the highlight of our 7 weeks, and I am sure none of us will forget it – your fascinating presentation, your magical tour of the prairie, and of course, the beautiful day . . .
We would like to thank Stephanie and her group of great young people for their interest and enthusiasm! STPS’ mission is not only to preserve and restore nature, but to educate the public about it as well!
