At Prairie Day in Lombard, the good, native plants will be running wild, growing along the shores of Terrace View Pond for all to see. But the bad, invasive plants? They'll be behind bars. The Lombard Garden Club and Lombard Park District, which team up to run the annual, free, one-day celebration of all things prairie, have created "a jail for all of the plants that should not be in the prairie," said garden club Co-President Rose Roth.
