Prairie Ridge Marsh Field Trip

Prairie Ridge Marsh Field Trip

Saturday, September 15, 2018 - 9:30 am

Join us for a field excursion to the Boeck Prairie Ridge Marsh Farm, sponsored by the Cedar Prairie Sierra Group, the Iowa Prairie Network and Friends of the Tallgrass Prairie Center.

The farm, owned by Bob and Desiree Boeck, consists of a Conservation Reserve Program (CRP-1992) prairie planting and a marshy area enrolled in the Wetland Reserve Program (WRP-1995). Since enrollment, several native grass and forb species have become part of the native vegetation. A waterway flowing 8 to 10 months of the year traverses the rear of the property. A borrow pit in the southwest corner has been deepened and enlarged for fishing and swimming activities. Numerous milkweed seeds have been spread annually with good results to help counteract the monarch population decline. Pheasant population numbers have stabilized. Fire lanes are mowed to aid access and serve as controls for unplanned fires.

Location: Prairie Ridge Marsh, 5601 Wagner Rd., Cedar Falls, IA 50613
