Prairie Fest was held Saturday, July 27, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the 42-acre Gottfried Prairie and Arboretum located on the UW-Fond du Lac Campus in Fond du Lac.

This free family-oriented environmental education event provided activities for all ages, including prairie and wild flower tours; artisans and an art fair; information on raising chickens, worm farming and beekeeping; a Master Gardeners' booth; rain barrel decorating contest and auction; along with food and entertainment.

The purpose of the Gottfried Prairie and Arboretum is to restore native plant communities, create wildlife habitat, and provide educational opportunities.

Since 1991, the native prairie and formal arboretum with several forest communities have been planted on the grounds of the UW-FDL campus.
