7:00-8:00 pm Presentation: Transforming a Superfund Site into Pollinator Habitat

At St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in Mission, KS.

Join The Resilient Activist’s founder and Extension Master Naturalist, Sami Aaron, to hear the inspiring and unique story of the Pollinator Prairie, situated in an older neighborhood in Olathe, Kansas, and how it was transformed from a toxic waste Superfund Site to an Ecological Habitat. You’ll learn:

  • The history of the property and the remediation process
  • How this devastated parcel of land was revitalized to support pollinators while providing a delightful neighborhood pocket park for the public
  • The role of the K-State Johnson County Extension Master Naturalists in maintaining the gardens and restoring habitat at the site
  • How you can install a simple, no-dig native garden to benefit butterflies, bees, dragonflies, and more
