Prairie Song is a 570-acre master planned community that celebrates the prairie ecosystem and encourages exploration of the natural environment. A thoughtful network of hard and soft paths wind throughout the community and will eventually connect to nearby downtown Windsor. Low native grasses throughout the community and in its parks provide for a soft planting palette, while elevated berms offer long views of the surrounding preserved landscape. The design team consulted with the Audubon Society and other local organizations to carefully plan for existing wildlife and impacts to their habitat. By design, Prairie Song enhances the music of nature, invites the slow-down, restores the prairie and connects to the larger community.
