Saturday, June 7.  Cass County with Larry Rizzo, Joe Alburty and Mike Stoakes.  8:30 to 11:30 AM.  Mini-BioBlitz at David & Kathy Winn's property near Drexel, Mo. Come help inventory the flora and fauna in this small, mostly untouched prairie known to contain many wildflowers, including Mead's Milkweed. No experience is necessary, as this will be an opportunity for novices to learn more about prairie flora and fauna. As good stewards of their unique property, the Winns are enthusiastic to learn more about the species here and are welcoming of our group to help in that effort . Meet at 8 AM at the McDonald's at 71 and 58 Hiways in Belton, MO to carpool to the Cass County location. Joe Alburty and Mike Stoakes will lead the bird survey, while Larry Rizzo of the Missouri Department of Conservation will lead the wildflower and mammal surveys. Enthusiasts of other fauna (herps and insects) are welcome to attend and lend their expertise. Bring lunch, sun and tick/chigger protection . Afterwards, those with extra time may wish visit another local prairie restoration effort known
