I live in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood and have enjoyed walks in Graceland Cemetery for years since it is the closest and only green space in the immediate area. About 10 years ago the south east corner of the cemetery was replanted in prairie grasses. It has attracted butterflies, bees, a variety of insects and more. The cemetery is also home to coyotes which can be spotted on a regular basis. Through the years I've seen hawks, owls, various woodpeckers, herons and many kinds of birds. Cemeteries seem to be a natural oasis for wildlife. Thanks for your article and I'll make note of this prairie and hope to visit when warmer weather comes.
