Prairie Restoration Groundbreaking of Black Jack Battlefield!

Join Native Lands Restoration Collaborative and Black Jack Battlefield and Nature Park on September 2nd from 10:00 a.m. to noon at Black Jack Battlefield- a National Historic Landmark just outside of Baldwin City, KS. (163 E 2000 Road, Wellsville, KS 66092- Just south of the Ivan Boyd Prairie).

This is the first volunteer workday to restore Black Jack Battlefield back to prairie. This project has been funded in part by a Natural & Cultural Heritage grant from the Douglas County Heritage Conservation Council.

This is a great opportunity to get your hands in the soil, learn about native wildflowers and become a part of history as we return Black Jack Battlefield back to the way it looked in 1856.

This event is great for all ages and abilities! Please come prepared to work outdoors. Be sure to wear long pants and sturdy, closed-toed shoes. Remember to bring along a water bottle, bug spray, sunscreen, and a hat if needed.

Please note that we have a portable restroom on site for volunteer use.
