Restoration continues among prairie communities at Powell Gardens. With the assistance of Conservation Crew volunteers, prairie communities along the Prairie Ridge Trail are being restored through stewardship tasks such as invasive species removal and woody encroachment management. Be sure to watch for improvements during your next hike on the Prairie Ridge Trail! 
Consider hiking the Prairie Ridge Trail of Family Discovery Loop during Trail Days on September 30 (9 a.m. - 2 p.m.). With guided hikes and a forest yoga class included in admission, this is the perfect way to discover Powell Gardens’ trail system!
As the weather begins to cool, you may be inspired to spend more time outdoors! Powell Gardens is open Wednesday-Sunday (9 a.m. - 5 p.m.). Tickets are available online (link in bio).

#ForagingFriday: Black Walnut (Juglans nigra) 
Grown in rich soil in deciduous woods, the black walnut is Missouri’s most valuable tree due to the high price they draw on the market. The nut is covered in a thick husk, which takes time to process. Always use gloves when processing black walnuts. The nut meat can be eaten raw but is also delicious in any recipe calling for walnuts.
