For more than a decade, volunteers have helped restore a local tallgrass prairie, one of the rarest ecosystems in North America. You can help continue this tradition of planting tallgrass seedlings, or “plugs,” on this beautiful property.
Land donor, Ralph McKim, has been managing the tallgrass prairie for almost two decades by germinating tallgrass plants like Little Bluestem, Big Bluestem, and Sideoats Grama in homemade greenhouses during the winter. Come warmer weather, and with the help of volunteers like you, the plugs are planted in the prairie!
