Project Description

Kyle's project has focused on prairie restoration and preservation of  biodiversity with a focus on the tall grass prairies of Western Nebraska.  Students have been focusing on the development of the landscape and efforts  to restore portions to their native flora and fauna. Through comparing their  own yards and neighborhoods with the biodiversity present at the Glacier  Creek Prairie Preserve in Omaha students have had a hands-on appreciation for  the native flora and fauna in the region.
