The Kissimmee Prairie

KPS600

Shaped by a unique interaction between fire and water, the Kissimmee Prairie is one of Florida’s more endangered ecosystems. Its ecological health depends on frequent disturbance by fire and maintenance of natural hydrology. The purpose of this site is to provide information about the ecology of the Kissimmee Prairie. This will include pages on the Kissimmee River restoration, Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades as I have time to create them. Terms that might be unfamiliar are linked to a glossary. So take a look and read about Florida's beautiful Kissimmee Prairie. Hopefully this site will also serve as a repository for research being done on the prairie. I’m adding more information and photos often so stop back by.

Begin with an introduction to the Kissimmee Prairie Here. Read about my introduction to the Prairie Here and a full history of the Sanctuary by Land Manager Paul N. Gray, Ph.D. Here. Read about the role of fire in maintaining the Prairie Here.
