Prior to European settlement, MN boasted more than 18 million acres of prairie. Today, less than two percent remains. The health of the pollinator population is uncertain and prairies are mandatory to support their survival. Remove brush (small trees like sumac or buckthorn) from invading the prairie habitat. This ensures grassland plants are winning in the area for the bees and butterflies. You will need: sturdy footwear, clothes that can get dirty, water, sunscreen, and bug spray. Dodge will provide: an instruction orientation and equipment so you can work independently.
