The National Mall in Washington, District of Columbia — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Pradera del este
This museum's eastern meadow environment consists of abundant grasses, wildflowers, and shrubs. Several of the plants are perennials and live many years, growing or lying dormant with the seasons. Native traditional healers use meadows as important sources of medicinal plants. They give thanks for the plants they harvest by offering tobacco, song, or prayer.
Meadows are a type of grassland ecosystem and cover approximately 19% of the earth's surface. They help clean and regulate water in rivers, lakes, and streams.
