      Grasslands come in various forms — wetland bogs, rocky barrens, lush prairies, even woodlands — anywhere the tree cover is sparse enough to allow grasses.   Scott Dragland is committed to healing grassland through the holistic management of ruminants. An Army veteran, he is embarking on a second career in regenerative agriculture.   A black-eyed Susan flower grows among a variety of plants in an open grassland area at the May Prairie State Natural Area on Aug. 20, , in Manchester, Tenn. Across much of the South, at least 90% of the native grasslands have been lost, the Southeastern Grasslands Initiative estimates.
