Season of Grass: The Prairie Rejuvenated after a Prescribed Burn

Posted in

You asked for it! We heard you ask for a photo series that captures the recovery of tallgrass prairie after a burn. We now have time lapse videos of the tallgrass and northern mixed grass prairies showing changes to the plant communities post-burn.

The tallgrass video was taken over the course of a year at a Kansas State University Prairie in the Flint Hills (Rannells pasture near Manhattan, Kansas). The burn occurred in the spring and the camera was raised as the plants grew.
