There is a download for the plant inventory to the Nachusa Grasslands but.... I couldn't find it online. There's some more prairies to visit listed out here, http://www.life.illinois.edu/ib/335/tallgrass.pdf.

What an inspiring piece on Nachusa! How many acres is that? In the first clip I noted how passionate the speaker was about the plants and animals. In the second it had me wanting to pitch a tent right in the middle of it and camp there for a few days. I'd like to find a place like that to volunteer in when I retire, which will probably be in a few years or so.

I'd definitely like to see that place...
