Nestled at the back of COSI, outside in Big Science Park, is a small patch of land that is our prairie. Prairies have been a part of Ohio’s natural landscape for thousands of years. They’re made up of special grasses and wildflowers that aren’t found in other habitats.
Early this year, we’ll be setting our prairie on fire like we last did in 2009 (see photo). Although we’re known for our explosion shows inside, this bit of outside combustion has a purpose too.
