Oak Grove Native Planting in Wichita

There is a native planting going into Grove Park in Wichita (about
2 miles west of the GPNC). The site already has artwork in place with native plant themes. There is also a unique play area adjacent to it with equipment that has local historical (both Native American and pioneer) features as well as emphasis on the prairie.
The planting of the area in the focal feature that will be right next to
North Hillside is to happen this spring. There will be semi-formal planting beds with native wildflowers and the spaces in between will be put into a short/midgrass mix. The Park Dept. is interested in working with qualified volunteers to enable the establishment of this special planting.
If interested, contact Jim Mason - or 316-683-5499 x103.
