Description:
The Friends of Konza Prairie, through the Konza Environmental Education Program, annually offers a Wildflower Walk, in June, on Butterfly Hill Trail, an area generally not open to the public. Registration and a wildflower slideshow will be in the Konza Meeting Hall (barn) at Headquarters beginning at 6:30 pm.
