Willamette Valley Natural History

OPB | Feb. 1, 1997 7:30 p.m.

Take a look at some of the Willamette Valley’s prairie lands. The Nature Conservancy of Oregon and the State are taking inventory of the valley’s native plants and wildlife species. See how the prairie has changed due to lack of fire. The oak savanna, one of the rarest and quickly diminishing of habitats is being crowded out by plants normally held at bay by fires. See how lack of this habitat impacts the survival of wildlife.

First Broadcast: 1997
