Abstract: 

Prairies and forests once covered much of Rice County Minnesota. Through the use of historical records and DNR maps, it shows how the landscape has changed in the county and the state. Local experts describe the characteristics and benefits of a prairie, including a model for farming practices, and also address the threats to a prairie. They suggest how you can help, by creating your own prairie patch in your back yard.
