I wish I could show you a better picture of the remnant wet prairie, but apparently Golden Alexander is feeling a little proud this year and wanted to show off how much of it could grow in this area. It’s pretty, and diversity is a lot higher than this picture makes it seem.
When we manage RCG we are as careful as possible to reduce damage to other species. The method we used here doesn’t exactly kill reed canary grass but it does a good job of hurting it and leaves most other species alone. Grasses are affected so we will restore the native grass colonies after we get RCG under control.
