Prairie Demonstration Site

With over one thousand acres in the Natural Areas, they provide the opportunity to practically demonstrate what native prairie grasses look like and how to replicate them in our own environment.

In May, 2004, we converted a section of grass from a mowed area beside the DeWitt House in the Natural Areas. A sign in front of the site explains the purpose of the demonstration.

These Natural Areas are a wonderful resource to demonstrate how to build more sustainable communities.
