The Monahan reclaimed mined land area is located in Crawford County, Kansas, and is approximately one mile north and one mile east of Cherokee, Kansas. Strip and shaft mining both occurred at the site. The reclamation project was performed in 1984, with seeding of native grasses comprising the final stage.
The study was designed to evaluate the revegetation portion of the project. Data was collected to determine basal cover and frequency of plant species occurring on the site; soil pH measurements were also included in the study. This information was used to develop a comparative evaluation of the grass species utilized in the reclamation.
