Native tall-grass prairie was once very common in SW Wisconsin, but today very little of the prairie remains. Restoring tall-grass prairie has great potential to benefit wildlife, especially our hundreds of species of native pollinators. Indeed, part of the cause of pollinators declines is a lack of flowers. No other local ecosystem provides as diverse a supply of flowers throughout the entire growing season than a tall-grass prairie. In this class we will cover the issues concerning our native pollinators and how we can integrate tall-grass prairie into our landscape to provide resources for pollinators and habitat for other wildlife like grassland birds. You will take home the skills necessary to establish a tall-grass prairie in your backyard or on your farm. We will also construct native bee houses for you to take home.
