Bee Branch Prairie Grassland / $25,000
The Bee Branch Prairie Grassland stretches along the west side of the creek between Rhomberg and Garfield Avenues. Native plants were strategically used to help manage rainfall and to diversify the landscape. Species include black-eyed susans, purple coneflowers, prairie blazing star, cardinal flowers, and many others. Restoring native prairie attracts songbirds, dragonflies, hummingbirds, butterflies, and other desirable species. The plants also have tremendous root structures that add organic matter to the soil and increase infiltration.
