Twilight on the Prairie 2010

A Prairie Celebration for the Entire Family

Despite rather bracing weather, parents and children enjoyed beautiful Spring Creek Prairie, site of Audubon's annual Twilight on the Tallgrass Prairie festival.

In addition to music and other entertainment, numerous stations dotted the prairie trails where youngsters and adults watched bird banding and captured bug; made kites; and learned about
the history of the prairie trails.

At last year's celebration, my station focused on birds and poems. This time around, I called the station "Feathers and Petals on the Prairie" and offered folks photographs of birds and wild flowers, images to color, and slide shows.

As the photographs from the evening suggest, everyone enjoyed the beautiful prairie on a chilly but warm-spirited evening at Spring Creek Prairie, a stunning area you can visit pretty much every day of the year.
