During the warmer months, we host tours of natural areas and of residential and community gardens that feature native plants.
Our final garden walk of the season features the Riverside and Stone Park area on Saturday, September 11. Visit renovated gardens at the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center, new plantings at the Sioux City Railroad Museum, a Pocket Prairie managed by the Friends of Stone Park, and member Ruth Rose’s property. Click here to download a two-page pdf with times, addresses, directions, and descriptions of the gardens. Please begin the tour at the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center so you can pick up the helpful information sheet of the species you’ll see that day.
