Summer Property Tour 1: Lynn & Jane Knutson
Time & Location
About the Event
This 70-acre property contains a diverse mix of restored southern dry-mesic woodland; a remnant dry, postage-stamp prairie; and a well-established planted prairie. Much of the oak woodland has been burned with excellent results. The dry, hilltop prairie remnant was acquired in 2014, and since that time Lynn and Jane have been working hard to eliminate woody invasives. The remnant, which was once tilled and later used as pasture, still supports a number of desirable native species including hoary puccoon, leadplant, milkwort, pale spike lobelia, sky blue aster, Indian paintbrush and New Jersey tea.
