About the Event

Join us for seed collection and brush removal at Shortline Railroad Prairie.

This site is a tiny remnant of the rich heritage of the tallgrass prairie that once covered east-central Illinois.  The areas bordering this old railroad bed were never plowed, and support a variety of native prairie plants.

Directions:   From Rantoul, head east on US 136 past Gifford.  South on 2400E for .5 mi.  Prairie on left, park by gate.

Carpool: We will meet at Farm and Fleet in Urbana (southeast corner of the lot) at 8:25am.

What to Bring: Long sleeves and pants, sturdy shoes, gloves, and hat.  If you have sturdy loppers for brush, they are welcome.  We will have tools.

Snacks and drinks provided.
