April's Monthly Prairie Walk--Plants of the Commons Ford Prairie 

Bill Carr, retired botanist at The Nature Conservancy, now owner of Acme Botanical Services, led a plant walk at Commons Ford Prairie on April 20, 2014. Bill identified over 65 plant species, most of which were native. The diversity, as well as the high percentage of native plants, is due to the restoration efforts  of Commons Ford Prairie Restoration Organization. The participants enjoyed Bill's encyclopedic knowledge of native plants and botany, as well as his enthusiasm and sense of fun.
