ST. JOHNS – Located near Motz County Park, just north of St. Johns, a grassland project that has used old farm land will add on to the park has been completed. This new addition will provide a safe habitat for local wildlife along with providing more recreational opportunities for visitors. “The goal of the project is to establish a prairie grassland with some native Midwestern grasses and provide a winter cover for a possible pheasant habitat or deer,” said Tom Olson, the Parks and Green Space Coordinator.
