Teaching Prairie with a Symphony

  Each year in an effort to teach people about the Flint Hills Tall Grass Prairie in Kansas people are invited to a symphony performance.  Crews set up a large shelter/tent for the Orchestra and smaller tents for the teaching aspect.
  It's an interested way to teach, people go each year, this year is sold out, and enjoy the time and the music.
  That Prairie is some of the last remaining of it's type in Kansas and Oklahoma, it was never plowed because of the "flinty limestone" just under the surface.

Still setting up.  Look at those Mammatus Clouds (storm).
