We had a great turnout at Pope Farm … family, friends, and even a visiting Rotarian from Oklahoma that tracked us down. Jim Olmsted worked hard to pull everything together. Even the weather cooperated (a rare thing these days). We learned about the Conservancy’s unique history, geology,   prairies, soils, glacial features and 20 different vegetative plots. And a lot about the fascinating plants that – with a lot of staff and volunteer help -- make the Farm their home. We also enjoyed the breathtaking 360-degree panoramic view of Lake Mendota, the Capitol, Black Earth Creek valley and the terminal moraine.
