Kennedy Woods Prairie/Savanna Project

The oak savanna is located near the south end of the west edge of Forest Park, St. Louis, between Kennedy Woods and Skinker Blvd. The area was formerly much like the rest of the park: a simple grassy area that was regularly mowed. The objective of the restoration project is to reestablish a diversity of native plant species in this area. Hopefully this will have the additional benefit of attracting birds and butterflies which don't normally inhabit the park.

In May 1999 a group of volunteers sowed seeds of native Missouri prairie plants into the restoration area. As the native plants take hold, the area is becoming more beautiful, and more interesting.
