Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie is 26 years into an ambitious 100 year-long program to restore 20,000 acres of the former Joliet Arsenal (1940-1996) to native tallgrass prairie. But the history of the Arsenal Era isn’t something to merely glance at in the rearview window of time. It represents a pivotal time in the sage of the United States.
