Prairies are wonderful places, and I hope that your interest has been stimulated to visit them and to learn more about them. Reading about them is a good beginning, but there is nothing like visiting the real thing. I hope that you have the opportunity to experience the vibrant, living world of prairies. If you find visit some prairies not on the above list that you find enjoyable, let me know and they can be added to future editions of this article. You can e-mail me with comments or suggestions or contact me at the Illinois Natural History Survey.
