Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary is home to a diverse native prairie plant community. Gravel trails wind through fields of big bluestem, little bluestem, side-oats grama and Indian grass. Visitors can continue along the paths around small ponds lined with joe-pye weed, boneset, vervain and marsh marigold. Volunteers play a huge role in restoring this park’s native habitat. They help us control invasive species such as crown vetch, bird’s foot trefoil, and musk thistle constantly threaten the integrity of Bruce Vento’s native plant community!
No experience necessary...Just a desire to be outdoors and learn about this local prairie and how YOU can restore it.
