Prairie gardens maintenance class at Weyerhaeuser Museum
The class will use the museum’s garden as the site for instructor Ben Wood to use as an example of how to care for and manage a native landscape.
LITTLE FALLS — A class on installing and maintaining a prairie garden will be 10 a.m.-noon June 25 at the Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum, 2151 Lindbergh Drive S., in Little Falls.
Instructor Ben Wood will use the museum’s garden as an example of how to care for and manage a native landscape. Established in 1977, not long after the museum was built, the prairie’s recent burn will serve as an example of routine maintenance and the ins and outs of prairie garden care.
This class is sponsored by Rethos: Places Reimagined and the Morrison County Historical Society, its central Minnesota education coordinator. The program was financed in part by the state of Minnesota from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society and by the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls One Planet Fund.
General admission for each class is $25. A “pay what you can” option is also available. Register at https://www.rethos.org/classes .
