Kids on the Prairie

April 2 @ 10:15 am - 11:45 am


Kids On the Prairie explorations are for children and their adult family members. They are open to members of Holy Wisdom communities and the public. Volunteers from Sunday Assembly and Friends of Wisdom Prairie provide support for each session.

On April 2, we will look for signs of emergent plants, animals and insects. Depending on the weather, we may find nectar sources for emerging bumble bees. We’ll look for food sources available to other over-wintering creatures.


Julie Melton and Anne Basken are retired teachers and members of Sunday Assembly and Friends of Wisdom Prairie Council. Both are passionate about the restoration of Monastery lands. Anne and Julie are members of Wisconsin Bumble Bee Brigade.

Julie is a master naturalist who has been guiding groups through natural areas since 2011. She enjoys birding and photographing insects. She is especially interested healthy habitat for birds and bird monitoring.

Anne Basken is a master gardener with special experience in pollinator gardens. She has helped coordinate a monarch education and tagging program. Last year Anne monitored monarch eggs in a prairie plot at the Monastery.
