Season of Grass Video Series

You asked for it!  We heard you ask for a photo series that captures the recovery of tallgrass prairie after a burn.  We now have time lapse videos of the tallgrass and northern mixed grass prairies showing changes to the plant communities post-burn. 

The tallgrass video was taken over the course of a year at a Kansas State University Prairie in the Flint Hills (Rannells pasture near Manhattan, Kansas).  The burn occurred in the spring and the camera was raised as the plants grew. 
 

Our northern mixed grass prairie video was taken at Ft. Keogh, Montana. The Agricultural Research Service research station hosted the camera in 2015. 2015 was a drought year so the plant productivity was less than normal.
