Long Bison Grass with Seed Heads

July 20, 2018

My able volunteer Stefan Hurlburt comes in on Thursdays and does a variety of tasks around my shop (he shows real promise as a taxidermist!). He strengthened the drooping long grasses with seed heads in the Shoreline diorama several years ago (read more about this in my blog  from October 20, 2016). I asked him to take a look at the grass that just came from Wyoming. Within minutes, he was harvesting the long grasses and running thin piano wire up the hollow stems just like he did with the Shoreline grass.
