Illinois Prairies

Illinois Prairies

If possible, please include whether the location of the spotting is a restored prairie or a native or wild location. Also, try to photograph various parts of each plant to facilitate identification (i.e. whole plant, flowers, leaves, buds). A field guide, such as Prairie Plants of Illinois by John Voight (no, the other John Voight) will be helpful. Sign in to join mission
