Meadow at Orchard Downs (In Progress)

Description

The goal of this project is to successfully restore the low-mow site at Orchard Downs Housing Facility to a meadow garden that has more function and biodiversity. This project will incorporate at least 25 native plant species, create habitat for wildlife and pollinators, and increase biodiversity overall. Other goals of this project are to give students hands-on experience and restoration skills. Additionally, it will be important to educate students and the community about Native American Culture through the land acknowledgement.

Background

Originally proposed by NRES student, Nicole Gamble, this project is now being led through the RSO, From the Ground Up, in collaboration with Facilities & Services and INHS.
