Pollinator Prairie


The definition of a prairie ranges from sparsely vegetated sand dunes, to fields of big bluestem, to wet meadows and to shortgrass prairies, but original prairie landscapes now only exist and precious fragments. While original prairies of extensive flat or rolling grasslands now only exist in fragments, a planting of prairie grasses and wildflowers to restore habitat to pollinators, birds and other wildlife, mimics the original functions of prairies (called restored prairies). Pollinator prairie plantings are ideal for larger spaces, typically for many acres of land.
