Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge

We were gone for a few days. There was a class reunion and a wedding to attend. While we were in Iowa, we visited a huge reconstructed prairie with a really nice visitors center, the Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge. We drove though the prairie along a winding road to the Prairie Learning Center. The center has a very informative video displayed on three screens about the prairie, many many educational displays and a book store. I purchased two books, Field and Roadside, Open-Country Weeds, Trees, and Wildflowers of Eastern North America by John Eastman and Making Collaboration Work, Lessons from Innovation in Natural Resource Management by Julia M. Wondolleck and Steven L. Yaffe. We did not have time to drive though the bison and elk reserve. Next time!
