We spoke with Wyatt Widmer, Associate Director of the Save the Prairie Society, about their conservation and restoration efforts at the Wolf Road Prairie Nature Preserve. Today, less than 1/100th of 1% of high quality original prairie remains in Illinois, making this little piece of Westchester both historically and ecologically significant. This land is designated as one of the highest quality natural areas in the state by the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission, and it's right down the street.
