Experience the growth of the Mill Creek Prairie

Prairie Walk at Garfield Farms

Garfield Farm Museum is offering a two hour plus prairie walk on Sunday, July 5th at 9:00am. The tour will be led by Jerome Johnson, the museums biologist. With the start of summer, the look of the Mill Creek Prairie is beginning to change with all the new growth that has emerged in the wake of March and Aprils prairie burns, and Junes rains. A close up look at the installation of a new bridge over Mill Creek after one year will be made. The lay of the land, the historic use of the land over time, plant relationships and climate all have impacted the plants that survive today at Garfield Farm Museum. Johnson will bring his knowledge and experience to bear in understanding these complex relationships. Visitors should dress appropriately for the weather. Reservations are encouraged. 630-584-8485, info@garfieldfarm.org. Garfield Farm Museums land preservation agency, the non-profit Campton Historic Agricultural Lands, has preserved over 375 acres of land, including over 55 acres of managed natural areas. Garfield Farm Museum is a historically intact former prairie farmstead and teamster inn being restored by volunteers as an 1840s working farm. The museum is located 5 miles west of Geneva, IL off ILL Rt. 38 on Garfield Road.
