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.

Cultural Impressions: Identities Molded in Clay Opening Reception

Cultural Impressions: Identities Molded in Clay Opening Reception

Thursday, September 27, 2018 - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

The title is Cultural Impressions: Identities Molded in Clay.

Ceramics have fulfilled a variety of needs throughout human history. From simple cooking implements to creative expressions of identity, clay has played an important role in expressing who we are. With the opening of its latest exhibit, Cultural Impressions: Identities Molded in Clay, the UNI Museum will explore the relationships between ceramics, culture, and individual identity. Cultural markers such as gender, class, and individual identity are all connected and help shape the importance of ceramics throughout the world. Cultural Impressions will look at a large range of ceramics and examine how cultures directly represent themselves through their pottery and how ceramics have been a forum for cultural expression and change.

Featuring objects from the UNI UNI Museum and the UNI Gallery of Art, this exhibit highlights the broad scope of identities and cultures found throughout these two collections. Incorporating ethnographic and art objects from pre-history to modern day, Cultural Impressions will afford visitors the opportunity to experience mankind’s ongoing relationship with clay.
