Sea Grass: Illinois Prairies and Vermont Cemetery

June 30th - 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

This presentation is in person. Please register.

Learn about a very unique pioneer cemetery nested in one of the last original prairie lands in Illinois.
Will County is home to Vermont Cemetery Preserve. A small Illinois State Nature Preserve due to its
rare plants that have never been touched by a plow or grazed by livestock. As all the lands around were
plowed for farming, but this tiny pioneer cemetery saved this virgin prairie from ruination. In this
program learn about why Illinois is called the Prairie State, why Vermont Cemetery Preserve is so
unique, and about the lives of the early settlers who are buried there.

 

Presented by Jen Guest from the Forest Preserve District of Will County
