Conversations From The Donald Danforth Plant Science Center

Missouri Prairies & Native Plants: The Science of Our Natural Landscape, September 2014

St. Louis was once the home of tall grass prairies, stands of grasses that often grew taller than grown men. The grasses – especially big bluestem, little bluestem, Indian grass and switchgrass - are still common today. Tall grass prairies are a unique and complex ecosystem that protects the environment by providing rich soil, assisting healthy crops to thrive and providing thousands of products to our communities. Join us for a Conversation at the Danforth Plant Science Center to learn about Missouri Prairies and Native Plants: The Science of Our Natural Landscape with Scott Woodbury, Curator, Whitmire Wildflower Garden, Shaw Nature Reserve, & Elizabeth (Toby) Kellogg, Ph.D., Member at the Danforth Center.
