Join Carl Kurtz, the "Johnny Appleseed of prairie", and Tim Youngquist for a hike at Spring Hill and Prairie Creek Wildlife Refuge. Many know Carl Kurtz because of his books on prairie reconstruction. For the last four decades his seed has been the source for countless reconstructions throughout central Iowa.
