December Delights of the Tall Grass Prairie – Cindy Crosby
About this event
Make yourself a cup of tea, snuggle under a warm afghan, and join prairie steward and writer Cindy Crosby virtually for this interactive online immersion into the tall grass prairie in winter. See the aesthetic beauty of the snow-covered grasses and wildflowers in cold weather through colourful images of winter on the prairies. Follow animal tracks to see what creatures are out and about, and see how many you can identify. Learn how birds, pollinators, and mammals use winter prairie plants; the seeds for nourishment and the grasses and spent wildflowers for overwintering, protection, and cover. Then, listen as Cindy shares brief readings about the prairie in winter that will engage your creativity and nourish your soul. A great way to end 2021 and begin dreaming about 2022.
Cindy Crosby teaches natural history for The Morton Arboretum, Wild Ones Native Landscape groups, Sierra Club, The Illinois Extension, Illinois Garden Clubs, and other organizations.
