CFC Documents Dallas County Conservation Event

The Dallas County News announced in September that the annual Prairie Awakening-Prairie Awoke Celebration at Kuehn Conservation Area would take place on September 7th this year. They report, “The celebration theme this year is ‘Much can be learned by watching children at play.’ This is a reflection on the words of Black Elk, the Lakota Elder, who said, ‘Grown men can learn from very little children for the hearts of the little children are pure. Therefore, the Great Spirit may show to them many things which older people miss.’

Although the participants did not get to enjoy the full event due to rain, the opening ceremonies, community, scenery, and set up for the event were inspiring and enjoyed by all who attended in the morning. The Kuehn Conservation Area has a gorgeous prairie area and wonderful quiet paths to walk on. It is a great place to enjoy and celebrate nature. To find out more about future programs they offer (they recently had an event where you could hand feed hummingbirds!) you can check out their page here or here and connect with them on Facebook here.

Cameras for Conservancy member Kristie Burns was on hand to document the event for Dallas County Conservation Board. Some of our favorite photos are below…
