Prairie Walk at Bennington Township Cemetery

Prairie Walk at Bennington Township Cemetery

Saturday, June 22, 2019 - 10:00 am

A Prairie Walk at Bennington Township Cemetery is being hosted by the Cedar Prairie Group of the Sierra Club, Iowa Prairie Network Region 3 and Friends of the Tallgrass Prairie Center.

The "old settler" cemetery is a mesic prairie remnant with a wide variety of native plants. There have been no burials in the cemetery for more than 100 years. The walk will be led by Bruce Stiles and Daryl Smith. Enjoy the mid-June wild flowers such as creamy indigo, hoary puccoon and prairie phlox, discuss their early uses, and learn about the pioneers of Bennington Township buried there.

We will meet at 9:30 a.m. at the Thunder Ridge Mall parking lot in Cedar Falls and car pool/caravan to the cemetery. For those who wish to join the group at the site at 10 a.m., the cemetery is located at the corner of N. Elk Run Road and E. Mt. Vernon Road next to St. Johns Evangelical Lutheran Church (4110 E. Mt. Vernon Rd, Waterloo, IA).

Location: Black Hawk County, IA
