Kenrick Prairie

Win-win-win-win.

The decision to turn 22 acres of land on the grounds of Kenrick-Glennon Seminary to native prairie benefits all God’s creatures. With the help of the Missouri Department of Conservation, groundskeepers at Kenrick-Glennon planted native wildflowers, then watched and waited for Mother Nature to take her course.

And, after a couple of years, the prairie has matured. The keepers cut a walking path, varying its course to keep it two-footed visitors from overtrampling. In the process, they’ve cut their mowing time in half. Birds, bees and critters have returned to the area and restored native balance and beauty to the grounds, making it that much easier to contemplate The Great Glories.

The prairie is a little piece of heaven, cultivated by folks who have The Man’s ear.
