Hidden Prairie Exhibit

Our Summer Learning Program theme is All Together Now and prairies are a great example of this-they are fascinating and complex communities that come together to create something special (maybe not too different from Waupaca?). Hidden Prairie, traveling to us from the University of Nebraska State Museum, showcases photographs from Chris Helzer, the Nature Conservancy’s Director of Science in Nebraska. Chris photographed one square meter of prairie over a year, and collected these images for this amazing exhibit.

Our very own City of Waupaca is taking the All Together Now idea to our roof with a new solar panel installation that will generate power for city hall and the library! This exciting project will be part of our exhibit, explaining how solar works and what we can do ALL TOGETHER to make our world a better place.

Watch our website and social media for fun programs, kits, and activities where you can learn more about prairies and solar energy, and become a citizen scientist in your own front yard!
