-My name is Danielle M. and I am currently a Sociology major at the University of North Dakota.  I picked Canada Wild Rye mainly because when I saw its picture it looked so much like wheat (an agricultural staple of North Dakota), and thought it would be interesting to see if there were any similarities between them.  Learning about the Canada Wild Rye and other Prairie grasses and flowers has been a great experience for me.  Not only did I know nothing of the species, but I had no appreciation for it or others as well.  Now that I know more and have learned the importance of prairie to the earth and those that live upon it, I have a new sense of awareness and appreciation.  Taking the time to learn about living things and how we are all connected is a great way to understand the world.
