"The prairie will provide a vista of color and texture to viewers as well as much needed wildlife habitat.  A rustic trail system will allow hiking and ecological education. There may be a picnic table or two, and some benches at strategic points to sit and enjoy the view. There will be ample opportunity for school and community groups, prairie enthusiasts, and individual volunteers to participate in and / or help with trail building, signage, tours, seed collection, bird counts, etc."
