One of our very own, Malinda, an ecological specialist is standing amidst one of our latest prairie restoration projects.  This 5.5 acre pollinator prairie is nestled into the heart of Frontenac, Missouri.  The prairie seed mix was planted last winter, there are lots of natives germinating and starting off on the right foot.  In each new project we add some annual prairie species to add to the excitement of the transition to the new pollinator prairie.  The yellow which surrounds Malinda is the annual Plains Coreopsis.  It is a great bloomer for the first year, don’t you agree?
