Then ignore it, let it grow naturally, and call it a meadow, a prairie, or even a native American grassland. The neighbors may be reluctant to share your bumper crop of dandelions and other weeds, plus the insects. birds, and even occasional rabbits and small animals likely to call it home. But you'll be right in step with a serious trend spreading across the country, the National Geographic Society says. It is creating what might be called ecological nature preserves of basic grasslands. Revive the Land Letting the grass grow naturally may be easier for big areas, such as parks and land beyond city limits. than for front yards where weed ordinances more or less insist on uniform neighborly neatness. Reviving the land and saving it from erosion is the big idea behind the National Grasslands set aside by the Forest Service of the Department of Agriculture. There are 19 grasslands covering :+.8 million acres, most in the Great Plains states where the prairie grass was largely eradicated by "the plow that tamed the West" and overgrazing by cattle and sheep. Thus these wide open spaces were made devastatingly susceptible to drought and wind ertion, the combination pr.ducing the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. Since then much of the region has become the world's rich(;sl breadtms- ket of wheat, corn anti ...l,cans. though drought again threatens the land. The National Crasslands are remnants of the 25t milli.n acres that stretched from lndiaml to the Ruckics. from Saskatoon in central Canada into Texas. To the the grass was tall. to the west. short. Only occasional cottonwoods or small oak along a stream brnke the sea of grass. Sodbusters' Graves But throughout a number of states miniature prairie patches are being slaked out by conservation groups. universities, even farmers. They may be sodbusters' grave- yards of a century or more ago. or stretches of railroad rights of way. or rocky slopes not worth plowing when waving grass beckoned all the w:w + the horizon. Whe'rever they have been burned over fairly regularly, as railroaders did to keep down the weeds along the tracks, the fire has killed or kept controlled such prairie immigrants as ragweed, bluegrass, Queen Anne's lace. and foxtail. With roots reaching down perhaps a dozen or more feet. the perennial grasses and wildflowers native t, the plains have survived, like big bluestem, or turkey foot. anti Indian grass. Tough times face fans of subdivision prairies, some even purposefully planted with still-hard-to- find prairie seeds. Back-to-nature homeowners are irving to defend their yards--with some success--against firefighters claiming weeds are a fire hazard: health departments' belief that tall grass may breed mosquitoes, rats. or hay fever pollen: and city councils' arguments that overgrown vards attract trash dumpers.
