Fermilab Education Office-Illinois Ecosystem Project: Photos & Information about Prairie Plants

From the Fermilab Education Office -- named after the world famous physicist Enrico Fermi and located amidst a tallgrass prairie -- this website offers a nice collection of prairie information and interactive programs for students. The first section contains images and profiles for plants like Big Bluestem, Mountain Mint, Compass Plant, Black-eyed Susan, and more. Each plant profile includes a photo as well as common and scientific name, family, type, typical habitat, and growth pattern. The Photos & Information about Prairie Plants section links to plant drawings and interactive sections that explore blooming times, root systems, and prairie quadrats.
