As part of our ongoing video documentary of The Jennings Prairie at Jennings Environmental Education Center in Slippery Rock, we spent a beautiful morning filming the dew-covered plants of this unique, important, and stunning area of Pennsylvania.
One of the park’s main features, the 20-acre prairie ecosystem, is home to distinctive prairie plants and the endangered massasauga rattlesnake. The most noteworthy and spectacular prairie flower is the blazing star (Liatris spicata), pictured above. Jennings is the only publicly protected prairie ecosystem in Pennsylvania.
Look for the premiere of our short film in late 2016.
