Prairie restoration is an ecological way of restoring prairie land that disappeared because of farming, industry and commerce. The purpose of restoring prairie land is to conserve and enrich the Earth’s top soil. Prairie restoration also prevents erosion and allows the soil to absorb excess water from heavy rainfalls.
Prairie land that has been plowed to make way for farming and commercial activities often affects the Earth’s top soil. Restoration includes the growth of prairie grasses and wildflowers, which provides grassland wildlife with shelter and food. Prairie restoration projects can be done on a small or large scale, and many communities and corporations are getting involved in prairie restoration.
