Inspecting Grasslands

(Le Mars) -- Last week during their monthly meeting, the Plymouth County Conservation Board took the time to inspect four of their grassland areas, located within the county.  Conservation Board Executive Director, Dennis Sohl says the purpose for the tour was to have the board be more familiar with the property, either owned or managed ,by the Conservation Board.  In many instances, the grasslands contain native prairie grass, and has never been plowed.

The O'Brien grassland is found in the southeast portion of Plymouth County, and Sohl says it is unique and that is the reason for colleges and universities wanting to study the grassland.
