Roadside Prairie Planting and Trash Cleanup

  • Date: Sunday, April 18, 2021
  • Time: 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
  • Location: meet at Sampson Hoffland Laboratories parking lot

Climate Justice Week is a campus-wide series of events in partnership with a variety of student organizations, centers and departments. A complete list of events can be found here.


Have you ever watched out your car window and noticed wildflowers blooming along the roadsides? Come learn about how these plantings have multiple benefits, including suitable insect habitat. Our primary objective will be to sow prairie seed along a nearby roadside, but we will collect trash on our walk to and from the site. Wear bright colored clothing to be easily visible.

Be prepared for walking and working outdoors. Wear sturdy shoes and long pants in natural areas. Bring a long-sleeved layer as protection from branches and thorns. Bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.  All tools and gloves provided for work events.
