Members Only Family Friendly Free Event Chapter Meeting Home Garden Tour

With the help of his three children, wife, and chickens, Peter Dargatz has been working to restore this degraded wetland and dying forest since acquiring this 20-acre property they affectionately named Craneview on Plainview in 2021. Various native wetland species have been replacing the reed canary grass since the restoration began. Soon, many new trees and an upland prairie will be added. Hiking shoes are recommended. A few different options will be available to explore this remnant sedge meadow. This tour will be followed by an optional trip to Peter's outdoor classroom and prairie restoration project at Woodside Elementary, just two minutes away by car.
