MY PARKS SERIES: INDIANA’S PRAIRIE PAST

Vast expanses of grass mixed with forbs and the occasional resilient oak created prairie landscapes controlled by grazing and fire.

You will be led into the past and learn about what animals controlled these native landscapes, and how they are controlled in the present.
