For When the Buffalo Roam

Directed by Jesse Mursky-Fuller

A meditative look at prairie restoration by any means necessary


All across Wisconsin the dreaded garlic mustard, buckthorn and purple loosestrife are WANTED--DEAD or ALIVE. They are being burned out, weed whacked and chemically treated. On the other side of the beloved prairie, native seeds and heritage flora are being harvested and replanted. What time will it be when the prairie is restored?
