Lichtwardt Woods, NW Lawrence (see directions below)
~led by Steve Roels~
Avian expert and former KLT staffer Steve Roels conducts this tour revealing the varied bird life of Douglas County. Traverse rugged, heavily forested land in rapidly developing NW Lawrence on which Bob and Betty Lichtwardt donated a conservation easement to KLT. They have since donated the land itself to the City of Lawrence for use as a natural park area with hiking trails. The first of these trails and a public parking area were recently completed. We will commemorate this easement with the placement of a sign made possible by the Elizabeth Schultz Environmental Fund.
The walk is free and open to all…no registration necessary. For more information, please visit www.klt.org.
Directions: From W. 6th Street, head north on Folks Road for less than one mile and the parking area will be on the left (west), just south of the intersection with Peterson Road. Just follow the KLT signs!

Announcing the first annual Lawrence Food Garden Tour!
This self-guided tour will showcase some of the diverse community and personal food gardens that are located within Lawrence's city limits. Gardens on the tour include vegetables, fruits, and herbs; front, side and backyard use; perennial, heirloom, and native plants; raised beds, chicken-keeping, intensive and companion planting, and water harvesting and trellis systems. Gardeners will be on site to give tours and share garden knowledge and inspirations.
It doesn't matter if you're an old hand or brand new to LSN, here's your chance to spend a fun evening with good food and good discussion. Enjoy time with old friends, meet new ones and hear more about what different interest groups have been up to, what they are currently doing, and what they are planning in LSN. Also, come hear about our new and improved website and what it now offers for the various interest groups. Local foods are appreciated; all foods are welcome. Don't hesitate to come even if you don't have time to cook!
Be Part of THE SOLUTION: Let's Collaborate!
Prairie Moon Waldorf School is actively engaged in a variety of sustainability endeavors. With the help of a start-up grant from the Elizabeth Schultz Environmental Fund of the Douglas County Community Foundation, the school started this spring the Okanis Market Garden on the school grounds (former Grant School near the Lawrence Municipal Airport.) We received a complementing grant from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to establish a rain barrel water conservation system and water conservation curriculum at the school. This grant made Prairie Moon Douglas County's first official "Kansas Green School." We have started a blog, www.okanisgardenatprairiemoon.blogspot.com to record the work in the garden. Our community partners in the garden project are Citizens for Responsible Planning, Lawrence Farmers Market and the Community Mercantile grocery store, which will sell the school's produce. The school is planning to participate in up-coming Kansas Green School conferences to be held in Lawrence and Wichita. Next October, the Okanis Market Garden will be on the Douglas County Garden Tour.

JOIN THE NEW LOCAL FOOD WIKI!!
Are you interested in local food? There's more to it than just being a grower or a buyer. How do we produce enough to support our local needs? How do we educate elected officials and administrators on the importance of local food to the local economy and global health?
We need your help!
A wiki site has been started to allow many to collaborate on building a local food economy, but a wiki can only be improved by participation from its members. Check it out and join to provide input at
