My name is Gina Britz and I am
currently a Sports and Fitness, Recreation and Leisure services major
at the University of North Dakota. I choose The Queen of the Prairie
because it looked beautiful and ravishing to me. At the beginning of
class our teacher spread pictures of prairie plants all around the floor,
we were going to pick from later . I eyed the Queen of the prairie for
the whole class period. As soon as our teacher told us to go and
pick a plant I went straight for Queen of the prairie.
Learning about prairie plants and flowers has been
a blast from the past. it is interesting learning about what we had and did
not have and now in the present what we have and do not have. I have
understood that we have lost lots of land such as grass lands, but we have
also saved land and how the owners of that land have such great attachments
to the land and plants.
These prairie lands that we are getting rid of are
home to the Queen of the prairie and other prairie plants. If we lose these
lands, the Queen of the prairie will be something from the past. People like
me in the future will learn about the Queen of the Prairie
but will only have a simple picture to look at.
