Event Details

Do you ever find yourself wondering about flowers? How about wandering through flowers? Come join our native garden club to get your hands dirty and gain some certainty about all your wildflower needs!
Every other Thursday we will be meeting at 9 am to work on the Native Pollinator Gardens, which are home to hundreds of resident pollinators. We may find ourselves planting, weeding, rockwork, watering, raking, and more! Our pollinator garden is always needing more plants, rocks, and love! By maintaining this garden we are giving habitat to so many species of butterflies, bees, wasps, and other crucial pollinators. It also serves as a place to teach students of all ages about pollinator gardens and exactly what “native plants” are and why they as so important in Kansas. We appreciate the volunteers who put so much work into this plot and would love for you to join us!
There is also the ability to work on the garden independently on your own time!
For more information please contact Bailey at bailey@gpnc.org or Katlin at katlin@gpnc.org
There will be space for all abilities, skillsets, and gardening experience. All ages. 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult. FREE. 
Can’t make it? That’s okay! We will also hold monthly walks. 
The last Thursday of every month at 6pm we will hold a Wildflower Walk, that will go through the park talking about what’s in bloom and other notable plants and trees. This will give you an opportunity to ask all questions,  learn native plants, and just have fun! We will meet by the large Great Plains Nature Center rock that is in the large parking lot, west of the building at 6pm and depart around 6:05. Bring water, dress to be outdoors, and maybe carry a journal if you feel like taking notes!
Please Note- On weeks that the Wandering Wildflower Club and Wildflower Walks both land on the same day, the Club will skip that week.
