Prairie Restoration Project

Prairie Restoration Project – 1973 to Present.  The Golfview Hills Park District (GHPD) has an ongoing project to restore the prairie. Part of the program is to occasionally conduct a controlled burn of the prairie, along with trail maintenance, drainage management and tree trimming services. The “Prairie” on Jackson Street in the southwest end of Golfview Hills is a small remnant of the lands that originally covered 95% of Illinois. There are many initiatives across the State to restore prairies to more natural status. Why are prescribed burns conducted? Fire prevents brush and trees from overtaking the prairie, prevents build-up of dead vegetation that encourages weeds and retards new growth, and improves habitat for prairie birds, mammals, and butterflies, many of them endangered. Upon completion of burn, GHPD spreads milkweed and other native prairie seeds to attract more butterflies and bees which will help maintain a healthier ecosystem.
