Touring Dixon Prairie, Chicago Botanic Garden (Sept. 30, 2022) Posted on October 3, 2022 Thank you, Joan O’Shaughnessy, Senior Managing Ecologist, Prairie and River of Chicago Botanic Garden. Joan eagerly gave us her time and knowledge. She patiently discussed all the plants we questioned and answered all our questions on the creating of the prairie. We left with new knowledge and a new appreciation for what was created from marshland! How kind of the Botanic Garden to create a sculpture to help Gloria celebrate her birthday!
