Take a walk with Preserve Manager Maureen Bogdanski and enjoy the sights and blooms of late summer at Irwin Prairie State Nature Preserve, the finest remaining sedge meadow in the state. The 1- 1/4 mile boardwalk loop will take us through mesic tallgrass prairie, sedge and grass meadows, shrub swamp, and pin oak flatwoods.
