This large field was formerly an asphalt parking lot until 2016, when it was restored as a meadow with native wildflowers and grasses. This herbaceous-dominated ecosystem hosts wildlife that form a complex and vital food web. The photo you submitted will track the regrowth and seasonal changes of this beautiful landscape.
