Prairie Fires at Flint Hills

The Flints Hills of Kansas are the last and greatest remaining stretch of tall grass prairie in the United States. Every year, for preservation, the tallgrass is set on fire to prevent invasive species and to add nutrients to the soil. The practice is distinctly midwestern just as are the ranchers and farmers who oversee it.
