Celebrate American's National Mammal with us on National Bison Day! At Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie we are working with over 275 different species of native Illinois prairie plants. A herd of conservation bison was introduced as a 20-year experiment in 2015. Volunteers, partners & staff are surveying to see whether the herd's grazing pattern, which creates more varied grass lengths, can encourage the return of native insects, birds and other prairie species. Autumn is a magnificent time on the prairie & Midewin's fall colors are featured in this national fall colors story map: https://tinyurl.com/y9xSv2od. #ItsAllYours! More details to come, including times & activities.
