Wiersma’s video After the Burn provides a bird’s eye view of the tallgrass prairie as a controlled burn concludes and when her drawing process begins. This is paired with excerpts from Katie Kingery-Page’s interviews with three scientists—Clenton Owensby, John Blair, and Shelly Wiggam—as they reflect on the history, ecology, and management of the Konza tallgrass prairie ecosystem today including the role of wildlife, fire, and other dynamics in play.
