Southeast Minnesota Prairie Enhancement


Audubon and its partners propose to enhance remnant bluff prairie and oak savannah habitat which aerial photos show are rapidly declining due to the explosive growth of invasive species. Our project will encompass invasive plant removal, chemical treatment, burning and supplemental re-seeding at 4 sites across 4 counties of southeastern Minnesota totalling 194 acres.
