2016 was a year of transition. A damaging storm came through the area in the late spring, bringing down many of the old bur oaks. Work was done on clearing fallen trees, pruning, cleaning up around existing structures, and further establishing campsites. New projects include building an ornamental natural stream by the meditation porch.

In the early fall of 2016, Prairie Oaks began a partnership with Phil Crandall of Crandall Farms.  Five bee hives have been installed, and five more will be established pending success of the first group.

We are looking forward to new initiatives, events, and partnerships in 2017!
