2005 Grassland Audit
The 2005 Grassland Audit assessed the current condition of the prairies and grasslands within Chicago Wilderness, using mainly vegetation and bird data. Most of the field work in 2005 focused on plants, as we already had bird data for most sites. (See the BCN Survey page for more information about ongoing bird monitoring.)
The results of the 2005 Grassland Audit are now available.
