The Tall Grass Prairie is a self guided tour of the Lake Carlos Environmental Center's on-going 4 acre prairie restoration project. Once the largest plant community in North America (18 million acres), today there are only a few small remnants remaining (150,000 acres). The Center invites you to visit our restored prairie as we try to create and manage the land as nature did. The guide will explain the project, introduce you to the prairie ecosystem, identify native prairie species and lead you on a walk through the fascinating world of the tall grass prairie.
