MWC Eco-briefs: Fairmount Cemetery & Crematory

Oblivious Rockingham Road traffic zips past this bluff prairie, which has stood on this spot of Mississippi River bluff in Davenport, Iowa for thousands of years. This hidden gem, buzzing with wildlife, is the last remnant of native bluff prairie in Davenport. For those looking to stabilize steep bluff slopes long denuded of its prairie armor, the prairie at Fairmont Cemetery is an invaluable clue into what plants work best in these locations.
