Eken Parklands ~ Meet Lance Green and Friends of Starkweather Creek at the Eken Park Festival to learn about PFAS and other challenges to the creek. Pick up a Creek Canoe Map and make a prairie seed ball to take home and start a patch of native wildflowers for butterflies and bees. Take a walk or bike ride along Commercial Avenue in the Eken Park neighborhood east of Starkweather Creek any day in August to discover nature in parks and backyards. Look for areas with native flowers that are being restored to prairies and rain gardens with help from Friends of Starkweather Creek volunteers.

MEETING LOCATION: Eken Park Festival, 700 Mayer Ave., Friends of Starkweather Creek booth
