We didn’t do much work on Big View Prairie this year. The only project I did was to cut and remove Burdock in the woods and along the edge with Western Prairie in September.

Our plan is to someday cut out all the small trees in this woods, to turn it back into a savanna. But there are always other places to work on, so we haven’t gotten to it yet.
