Pierce Butler Meadows
Pierce Butler Meadows has been restored! At the intersection of Pierce Butler Rte. (west) and Snelling, there is a prairie restoration site for ALL community members to enjoy. After a week of planting and a public art celebration with neighbors, students, and Artist Lucia Monge, the site is ready to germinate over the winter and bloom in the Spring.

Signage will go up on the site early spring with a map of the designated path to walk along to educate and enjoy the site.

We encourage to visit the site and enjoy its beauty with respect.

Any questions about the site or for future volunteer opportunities contact info@hamlinemidway.org.
