The prairie began as a small 20′ x 10′ area in 2000. After section plantings each year from 2000-2005, the prairie now expands across 1.5 acres of east and west facing slopes. We are planning to expand the prairie across 7 more acres into the oak savanna.
We continue to expand and encourage the growth of the prairie by planting native seeds and slowly removing invasive species. This is an ongoing project that continues to foster and encourage the growth of pollinator and wildlife populations throughout the seasons. We conduct a prairie burn every 2-3 years.
