From our director
If you build it, they will come. Dickcissels, wild bees, common milkweed — even in our agricultural landscape, a few organisms native to the tallgrass prairie will take up residence in a newly available habitat, just as they did when the vast prairies were unbroken. But the list of prairie plants that are “at large,” independent and wild, is very short. In contrast, the Tallgrass Prairie Center grounds are teeming with such species.
This year was marked by drought, but also by a flood of opportunities. Events such as the rededication of Irvine Prairie and two national conferences pulled us even closer together as a team. As ever, we took pride in contributing to UNI’s mission, involving students in all of our programs and supporting their accomplishments.
I am excited to share this year’s Highlights from the Tallgrass Prairie Center!
