Program Description


with Dr. Paul van Wie, Editor, Author, Historian

The Hempstead Plains, the only natural tallgrass prairie east of the Appalachians, once covered approximately 40,000 acres in Nassau County. Today, a small area of the Plains continues to exist as a nature preserve, a unique gem in a heavily developed area. Learn about the Plains in this special program with Dr. van Wie, history professor at Molloy College and the editor of a new book about the Plains.
