As Henry David Thoreau wrote, “It’s not what you look at that matters; it’s what you see.” Take a virtual walk with Joyce and John Mori, exploring through photography the hidden and often-missed beauty of our local prairies. John and Joyce encourage you to see prairies in a new way, experiencing the prairie as a means of increasing both learning and enjoyment. “We want the audience to experience the prairie, not just look at it,” notes John.
