What is a Piedmont Prairie?
Thursday, Dec 10, 2020
7:00pm – 8:00pm
Join Executive Director Bert Harris via Zoom to learn about the initial results from our surveys of native grasslands this summer. Our research team studied plants at 38 native grasslands that have never been planted in Fauquier, Culpeper, Prince William, Fairfax, and Rappahannock counties. We found more than 450 species of plants (!) including one globally rare and three state-rare plants. We did these surveys to find out what kinds of plants are found in the high-quality grasslands that remain in our region and to identify conservation solutions to help save these important habitats. We are also using our results to design seed mixes so that wildflower meadow plantings can provide excellent habitat while also being beautiful and easy to establish.
