Life Below the Prairie!

Ever wonder what happens below your feet, down in the earth where you can’t see? 

Join Jennings' staff Sunday, August 4th from 2:00 - 4:00 PM for a guided walk to discover a world never seen, life below the prairie.  Darkness, hard clay soils and extremes in moisture levels make this a difficult environment in which to survive, let alone thrive. 

But the plants and animals that call the prairie “home” have adapted to these conditions. Together connections are formed and communities are built. Below the surface the hustle and bustle of daily life happens, year-round, whether we can see it or not. 

The prairie at Jennings is a unique ecosystem (a biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment) and exists due to a combination of geology, historical climate, and modern management.  

*Program is FREE and no registration is required* 

*Meet in the Prairie Parking Lot Area*

Jennings is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. weekdays and on weekends as scheduled.  The trails are open daily from sunrise to sunset for hiking and other environmentally related activities.  If you need an accommodation to participate in park activities due to a disability, please contact Jennings at 724-794-6011.  With at least three days’ notice, interpreters for people who are deaf or hard of hearing are available for educational programs.
