Vet-Med Prairie Funding Agreement

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on June 30, 2009

The goal of this project would to be to plant a tallgrass prairie garden that mimics the natural prairie growth of Illinois.  The garden would go in two locations front of the Basic Sciences Building and be about 10200 sq ft.  The garden would consist of 40-50 different plants and consist of around 10000 seedlings. This project will create an area of native habitat on our campus, help educate and engage students about the prairie landscape, integrate with educational opportunities and serve as a pilot for future initiatives of this kind. Therefore, the Student Sustainability Committee is in favor of funding the project for $21,700.
