Just how tall is 'tallgrass prairie' grass? Way taller than a person.
DP283-2015 Posted Saturday, October 10
A series of trails criss-cross this small prairie, giving runners and walkers an opportunity to feel immersed in the landscape without trampling on fragile plants (or risking exposure to hidden poison ivy and nasty insects).
Big Bluestem and Indiangrass, the tallest of the grasses on the prairie, can grow to heights of seven feet or more.
