Prairie Restoration Drone View

The Missouri Drone Journalism program partnered with the Columbia Audubon Society to provide an aerial documentary of the group’s prairie restoration project at the Columbia Audubon Nature Sanctuary within the Bonnie View Nature Sanctuary in Columbia, Missouri. More than 15 acres of a former cow pasture were seeded with Missouri native grasses and wildflowers. In 2016, the Native Plant Society helped plant 147 pounds of seed containing 86 species to restore the prairie. Now in its second full growth season, the prairie is an explosion of color.
