Big View Prairie 2002

[To see photos and stories of this prairie in other years, go to the links on the main Big View Prairie page.]

This is the year after we got rid of the pines below the prairie.  Now we can look down through the woods and see the valley below.

11/12/2002  This shows the line of trees – big old Burr and White Oaks, brush, elms, birches and aspens – growing between the remnant and Western Prairie.  There’s also a group of birches and aspens that grows down into the remnant itself.  I think the cows must have liked grazing there, because the dominant plant under those trees is Smooth Brome.
