The ESE Institute and the Environmental Studies Club have been working together to install a native prairie graden at NIU. The intent of the garden is to demonstrate that native plants can be used in aesthetically pleasing ways. The Environmental Studies Club students will plan, plant, and maintain the garden.
If you would like to be involved with the garden please contact Melissa Burlingame at email@example.com.
