Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge

Taken By a Two Year Old

Breaking into Lead Me Guide Me

Death Against a Blue Backdrop

We had the last unseasonably warm day to explore the tall grass prairie. Only one-tenth of one percent of this type of prairie remains. It is 8,600 acres of land that was purchased to restore and reconstruct the prairie and oak savanna. They have also reintroduced bison and elk herds.

We hope to visit here each time we come up to Iowa. I am so pleased it exists.
