MPF Board Meeting, Dedication of Noah Brown’s Prairie, and Moth Evening

Saturday, July 22, 2017

Join MPF board members and other guests as we dedicate MPF’s latest prairie acquisition—Noah Brown’s Prairie in Newton County near Joplin, at 2:00 p.m. The event follows the third quarter meeting of the MPF board of directors at 10:00 a.m. Refreshments will be served at the dedication and MPF’s Vice President of Science and Management Bruce Schuette and Director of Prairie Management Jerod Huebner will lead a guided tour of the property following brief remarks. After dark, black lights will be set up to attract and observe moths—in recognition of National Moth Week that begins on this date. For the moth evening, gather at the prairie at 8:00 p.m.
