Native grass and flower seeds were collected and planted this month at McEwen Nature Reserve. McEwen is one of 3 reserves where NLT encourages tallgrass prairie species through controlled burns, seed collection, and planting. Thousands of prairie grass and flower seeds were sown on the same site as this springs controlled burn. The beautiful results of past controlled burns and plantings, especially the savannah grass and little bluestem, made for a spectacular fall scene, and will provide seeds and cover for wildlife this fall and winter.

Thanks to everyone who came out on this beautiful day to help restore a rare ecosystem!
