This Fall we began the process to turn a retired agricultural field into a mosaic of wetlands, wet prairie, mesic and dry prairie.
Below are the photos and maps of this work. At the end is a link to the full report on our Friends of Nachusa Grasslands site. The report was written by this year’s Nachusa Resident Fellow, Anna Scheidel.
The planting is 23-acres.
To read Anna Scheidel’s carefully written 18 page report go the Friends of Nachusa Grasslands Stewardship tab and scroll down to Planting Histories to number 133.
