Carol Davit, Executive Director of the Missouri Prairie Foundation, shares the natural history of the prairie ecosystem that once covered more than 15 million acres in Missouri, including the 33 acres of the Woodneath Library Center. Fewer than 45,000 acres of prairie remain in the state, but these remnants are biodiversity reservoirs and hold the keys to sustainable future land use.
