The North American prairie extends across eighteen states and provinces in the heartland of the United States and Canada, and many prairie preserves are within easy driving distance of large cities. This new field guide provides detailed profiles of 48 major North American prairie preserves and capsule descriptions of 120 smaller preserves. Each preserve profile includes practical information on what times of year to visit, how to get there, where to go hiking and camping--and even boating. Each profile also covers weather conditions and wildlife of special interest, in addition to the flora, fauna, and natural history of the preserve. More than 250 stunning color photos illustrate everything from scarab dung beetles and orchids to bison wallows and hailstorms.
