The Push to Protect Wolf Road Prairie

Adrian Ayres Fisher writes at ecological gardening on the subject of a proposed housing development adjacent to a local prairie remnant:

“[T] destructive pattern needs to stop already, right here and now. It so happens that these 15 acres are integral to a vitally necessary buffer zone that shields Wolf Road Prairie, an Illinois Nature Preserve, from nearby development’s negative effects, while themselves providing valuable ecosystem services. 
…Wolf Road Prairie is one of the last remaining examples of undisturbed black-soil grassland on earth.”
