September is a perfect time to visit a prairie.

With it's cooler weather, you can see prairie plants such as copper grasses, compass plants in bloom, gigantic prairie dock leaves, dropseed smelling like butter, blue gentians peaking out from the protection of the tall grasses, even a monarch or swallowtail flitting around the milkweed plants, leading the way down the trail.
