Created and presented by Stitchers Youth Council exploring the peacefulness of Missouri’s natural prairie landscapes.
It’s interactive and family-friendly so bring the kids!
Sing along to a hip hop song, dance to a bug beat, take a selfie with a bison, and more!!
To The Prairie expands the artistic body of work of young African American artists in the Collective, expands the exploration of new natural settings by both artists and audiences, and supports the greater understanding of Missouri’s unique natural heritage in its endangered prairies.

After the performance, Story Stitchers artists and prairie specialist James Trager will offer a Q&A. He’s led us on two hikes so far and we think he’s amazing!
James Trager is an insect scientist who early in his working life realized how habitat loss was impacting insect life and all the other life connected to them. James worked in management, restoration, and interpretation of prairies, woodlands and wetlands at Missouri Botanical Garden’s Shaw Nature Reserve for 28 and 1/2 years, and is a technical advisor to the Missouri Prairie Foundation.
