The association maintains more than 12 acres of restored prairie area, which are accessible to the public via a system of city-maintained trails. The green spaces provide neighbors and visitors opportunities for relaxation and exercise, as well as education. Groups of area students and photographers are occasionally observed visiting the natural areas, and the association sponsors a summer series of evening prairie walks.
The new website is: www.GMWprairie.com.
The website is also accessible via the homeowners’ association website, www.greenmeadowswest.com.
The project was developed by board member Jason Rauscher, an adjunct professor of biology at Grand View University.
Throughout summer, guided prairie walks are led by expert Inger Lamb of Prairie Landscapes of Iowa LLC. Walks begin at 7 p.m. at the Windsor Park parking lot. The final tour of season is scheduled for Thurs., Sept. 7, 2017. Please join us!
