Be a local

I belong to a MeetUp group that is outdoors-nature-education oriented. Birding, exploring a pond, that sort of thing. The following event was recently posted to the group. I post it here because I feel that geocachers value the native wildlife. We get are privileged to explore and appreciate the backwoods in a different way than most people. Maybe you can take some nature home with you. My bees will appreciate it if you do.

Native Plant Sale
Friday, May 17, 2013
2:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Grays Lake
Fleur Drive, Des Moines, IA

From the meetup group website: 

Did you know that Iowa was once covered with 30 million acres of native prairie? Today there is only 1/10 of 1% left! Visit Gray’s Lake May 17 - 18 and talk to the experts on how you can bring a little bit of prairie to your own backyard at the annual native plant sale. Available plants will be suitable for different types of sites from rain gardens to dry areas.
