Can you walk the walk?
The Lek Trek is a 565-mile walk across Missouri sponsored by the Missouri
Prairie Foundation. It will span the state from Iowa to Arkansas,
taking trekkers through the best of Missouri's prairie country. Sixteen
special events are planned in towns along the way to celebrate our prairie
heritage and highlight the importance of grasslands.
Named after the "lek" (courtship ground) of the greater prairie-chicken,
the Lek Trek is a campaign to raise awareness of the value of grasslands
- and the plight of grassland plants and animals. It will also raise funds
to further the work of the Grasslands Coalition,
which helps Missouri landowners improve their grassland habitat. The Lek
Trek will provide hundreds of exciting opportunities to relive our colorful
past, relearn the secrets of our prairies and discover ways to improve
and make the most of this valuable natural resource.

The newest Grasslands Coalition member, the Food Circles Networking
Project, will have a presence at several Lek Trek Special events.
