Meet William Bartram in 1774, while he visits Paynes Prairie, and talk about his life and work as the first born American naturalist. This is a living history program, provided by a park volunteer, who will remain 'in character' throughout the duration of the program. You are welcome to come interact with him, ask questions, and hear what he has to share about his current experience exploring the prairie. Bartram wrote detailed descriptions, including illustrations, of what he saw at the prairie and in the surrounding area.
