Dordt's prairie project is growing
Wildflowers are beginning to spring up at Dordt College's prairie project south of the B.J. Haan Auditorium along the Sioux Center bike trail. The college is restoring 20 acres of tall grass prairie along the trail.
Globally, tall grass prairie is one of the most endangered ecosystems on earth. Given the nearly complete loss of prairie in Iowa, restoration projects like the Dordt College Prairie enable people to get to know the unique plants God created and placed in this part of the world and learn to appreciate the beauty of prairie.
Land preparation for the Dordt College prairie began several years ago when the college removed trees from the wetland area, began to use only herbicides without carryover on the cropland, and removed the original pasture. The northwest seven acres of the prairie was seeded in the spring of 2008, and the rest was seeded in the spring of 2009.
Learn more about the project, and a recent prairie walk, here.
