Small Prairie at Natural Resources Building (In Progress)

Project History

Description

The Natual Resources Building is the site of another native species planting project, both in front of the building and behind it on Pennsylvania Avenue. This project is funded by the Student Sustaianability Project.

The front of the building is home to five plots of woodland wildflowers. Fifteen plant species are present in the plot behind the building, which was formerly covered in mulch. Many of these species are insect pollinators. Monarch butterfly larvae have been spotted at the plot. Staff and student volunteers from the Prairie Research Institute maintain the plots at the Natural Resources Building.
