Abstract

A water quantity study of Wind Cave National Park was begun on May 12, 1987. The first summer's field data was tabulated in a report dated September 25, 1987. The text of that report dealt mainly with locations, field investigative techmiqies and methods of making water measurements. The present report will add to the previous field data, attempt to explain the readings obtained and make some suggestions based on those measurements as well as other observations.

fire on the prairie

Fire is an important factor in protecting the prairie. Historically, fires burned across the prairie every 4 to 7 years. Fires burn the small trees that would otherwise march across the prairie and turn the grasslands to forest.
