Prairie Ridge Tree Trail

Prairie Ridge Tree Trail is using Nature's Notebook to monitor the trees in their forest patch to see if the trees are healthy (i.e. they have similar phenology to other trees of the same species in the region) while engaging the public in citizen science opportunities at the site. It is a research station, but also open to the public and acts as a nature center, an environmental education center, and a wildlife refuge.  It is managed to promote as many species of native plants and animals as possible and has 15 acres of constructed native tallgrass prairie as the centerpiece of the 45 acre
grounds.
