Visit Prairie Ridge for our latest StoryWalk® featuring When Winter Comes, by Nancy Van Laan and Susan Gaber! Our story begins just inside our entry gates and will take you on a short trail as you learn about how our prairie and forest change during winter.

Be sure to wear closed-toed shoes that can get muddy, appropriate dress for the weather, and bring a water bottle. Trails are mulch, dirt or grass and small hills are included — trail strollers or baby carriers are recommended for our smallest visitors. Bring a picnic and enjoy the day (but please pack out your trash!).

This StoryWalk® will be available January 4th-31st each day we are open, weather pending. Prairie Ridge is open 9am-4pm Tuesday-Saturday; closed on Sundays and Mondays.
