The Prairie's Plight

See the Emporia Gazette Online for a disturbing article, "The Prairie's Plight," to better understand the concerns of many folks with widely varied interests. Give it some thought. Do what you can, individually, to help out.

Thanks again to Flint Hills, Tall Grass on Facebook for bringing this article to our attention.

See you in the Kansas Flint Hills! ;-)

Isn't this the way it's always been? Plants (or animals) are imported from foreign countries or cultures without considering the long term effects of installing them. Very odd, however, that the annual burning doesn't eradicate this threat to the tall grass.

For all the burning that it seems is done, there is much, much more acreage that is not burned, I think.
