CANCELLED: June 6, 2020: Prairie Wander, Potluck, and Campout at Carver Prairie


Prairie Wander, Potluck, and Campout on Saturday, June 6, 2020

You are invited to a free weekend of fun and learning at this Prairie Wander, Potluck, and Campout to celebrate National Prairie Day at MPF's Carver Prairie on June 6, 2020.

Join biologists on the prairie and learn about prairie plants, soils, birds, insects, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and more! The weekend will also feature a potluck dinner with wild game samples, free tent camping, and nocturnal insect observations & star gazing. Activities continue through morning on Sunday. Stay for a few hours or the whole weekend! 

This event is free of charge, and an interest in nature and prairie history is all that is required to attend.
What MPF provides: a big tent for gathering and eating under, chairs, tables, and portable toilets.
What you should bring: tent camping supplies, outdoor clothing, sunscreen, insect repellent/tick protection, flashlight, drinking water, plates, utensils, a dish to share at the potluck dinner and a cooler to keep it in if it is perishable. You may also want to bring food for breakfast on June 7 and snacks, as well as field guides and a camera. Tip: rubber boots are nice for shielding against morning dew. In order to avoid disruption of the flora and fauna being studied, we ask that you leave your pets at home.

This event will take place rain or shine. No registration required. 

If you have any questions, please send a message to or call 888-843-6739.
