Late summer is when the prairies are at their finest. Tall grasses waving in the breeze – wildflowers gushing with color – yellow, gold, purple, and pink. Pollinators of all sorts busily visiting the blooms. Come out and visit one of these preserves to see the prairies before the spectacle fades away: Cressmoor Prairie and Gordon & Faith Greiner in Hobart, Seidner Dune & Swale in Hammond, Ivanhoe South in Gary, and John Merle Coulter in Portage.
