'The Prairie City' The Ripon Historical Society to host talk featuring Neill Diboll and Benjamin Grady

Two of our Prairie Sands Chapter members, Neil Diboll and Ben Grady will be speaking at a Ripon Historical Society Event on Aug 18 from 7-9pm.

Neill Diboll, featured Wisconsin Public Radio and PBS speaker, plant ecologist, researcher and restorer of native prairies, will share the story of America’s prairie ecosystem, pre-settlement importance, near destruction and revival today.

A frequent lecturer, Diboll frequently speaks about how to establish prairie meadows, landscape design with native plants and the many benefits of converting resource-intensive landscapes into self-sustaining ecological sanctuaries.

Ripon College Assistant Professor of Biology Benjamin Grady also will speak about the importance of Ripon College’s 130-acre native plant and prairie installation and its ecosystem importance for the Ripon community.
