TERRE HAUTE - I can stand on my soap box for a long time when it comes to debating habitat


I met a very determined gentleman with a life mission he will not give up on. Phil Cox and a large group of other wonderful people are fighting a battle to get some government ground turned back into natural habitat at Newport.


The habitat is a black-soil prairie or a tallgrass prairie. According to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, "at one time 14 percent of Indiana was covered with prairie grasses. Today, in the 21st century, prairies and and the grassland animals dependent upon them are considered globally threatened."
