Title: Native Prairie Restoration: How You Can Be a Habitat Helper.

Description: The prairies of North America were once vast grasslands that covered 200 million acres, a complex ecosystem supporting a diverse array of wildlife. Today, less than 1% of that native habitat is left. Declines in native prairies are a result of habitat loss and degradation due to human encroachment and agricultural expansion. Learn how and why it is important to restore native prairie, even in an area as small as a backyard, and see how you can become a habitat helper.
