The Big Day in Park 2013 was a big success on Sunday, April 7. Over 200 people participated in the event and we raised over $7,500 for the ongoing prairie restoration efforts. We had a total of 85 species which smashes the prior single day record for the park of 73 species. For a complete list of species, click here. If you click on the link, you will also discover some of the interesting hits and misses of the day. As you can see from the attached photos (courtesy of Lee Wallace), everyone enjoyed the beautiful day in the park. We give a huge thank you to all of our sponsors, our volunteers, our field trip leaders, our business and organization supporters, our vendors and booth operators and especially to our donors.
