About the Event
Join us for our fall 2024 membership meeting! We will conduct a membership meeting to update our members on the status and upcoming projects of Grand Prairie Friends and enjoy presentations from special guests.
GPF’s own Fairchild, Prospect, McKenzie-Waltrip and Loda Cemeteries protect more than flora & fauna. These sacred places are also the final resting place for long-past family members, soldiers and occasionally, nameless travelers whose journeys were unexpectedly cut short. Familiarize yourself with the statewide status of natural areas that serve as final resting places with IDNR Archeologist, Dawn Cobb. GPF volunteer, Beckie Green, will share the specific details of our own Loda Prairie.
Everyone is welcome to this free event.
