A little house near the prairie in Morton Grove

Joe Zekas

20 years on the North Shore without going native.

Within just a few years patches of prairie grass - often in pots - have popped up almost everywhere you look in Chicagoland. When I hear the phrase "invasive species," I think "prairie grass."

Naturalists, of course, have a different view of invasive species. In Illinois, prairie grass is not among them.

If you don't consider naturalists to be an invasive species, and have a hankering to live near a piece of the Illinois that existed 100s of years ago, you can find an affordably priced little house near two prairie patches: the Morton Grove Prairie Nature Preserve and the Wayside Prairie.

The modestly-sized 2-bedroom ranch at 9020 Linder Ave in Morton Grove is offered for sale at $215,000 on an "as is" basis. An open house is scheduled for this coming Sunday afternoon, October 24, from 1 to 3.
