Bobcat Prairie Experiment

LOOKING Closer

This camera observed a tallgrass prairie restoration experiment just outside of Lincoln, Nebraska. The experiment compared different seeding methods and management strategies that are commonly used in prairie restorations. The plot on the left was broadcast seeded with a high diversity seed mix. The plot on the right was seeded with a moderate diversity seed mix using a seed drill.
