Please click on image to follow the photo to Flickr and use option to ENLARGE view of a portion of Pinnacle Prairie trail being dug up to repair minor damage.
Will the trail coordinator also have the red dirt and rock and debris such as a crushed silt fence and numerous buried fence posts dug out before accepting this trail? It is a nature trail through the Pinnacle Foods Inc. wet prairie where native species of plants and a wide range of butterflies, birds, deer and other wildlife abound. The plants there are a source of native species seed and are increasingly rare in Northwest Arkansas. NO nonnative grass or flowers or ANY trees should be planted. The seed base is ancient. No cultivars of any species should be brought in. The adjacent land will provide the native seed to vegetate the filled land along the trail. None of the so-called topsoil that the city and contractors use in parks and other areas should be added there. The things that grow there must be what comes from the adjacent prairie land. The deer and birds will spread the seed naturally.
