waterloo prairie is a couple parcels of land along stony brook, one with a fen and many seepages, the other with a larger wet prairie meadow. i visited the latter, moving thru a small wood with wet, boggy patches thru-out to get out into the open.
as was the theme of the day, sandhill crane calls rattled back and forth over the meadow’s expanse.
