Prairie in Progress at Bluebird Meadow

As part of our ongoing efforts to restore and improve the native ecology around our greenway projects, Great Rivers Greenway is taking on the development of a new prairie in St. Charles County. With the help of DJM Ecological Services, we are turning a former 34-acre sod farm along the Dardenne Greenway into a wildflower prairie. The project, consisting entirely of plants native to Missouri, will take a few years to fully establish, but the first bits of green are now visible! We recently caught up with Becky McMahon from DJM to learn more about this new prairie and the benefits that native plants will provide to the project and the community.
