River King Wildlife Refuge: Prairie Grasses and Trees in Early Morning Sun

River King Wildlife Refuge: Prairie Grasses and Trees in Early Morning Sun
Edition Size:

After the Peabody Coal Company stripped the coal from its River King Mine, it donated the land to the State of Illinois, which converted it to a wildlife refuge.

In stripping the coal a really big Tonka toy scoops the soil and rock (overburden) from the landscape. Then the coal it mined. When the coal plays out, the resulting long, deep, and narrow holes fill with rainwater. The State of Illinois stocked the lakes with fish, turning the refute into a prime fishing destination for people living in St. Louis, Missouri and towns in southern Illinois. Then the state seeded the hills with native prairie grasses.
