Project Theme: Habitat Restoration
2013 Application Submission
Project Description: This project will follow the Lawns to Meadows project which has already been implemented as a campus-wide initiative to convert green grass lawns to meadows of native plants, thereby conserving water and rehabilitating appropriate plant life. The project will incorporate these concepts by replacing an underused Clark Kerr lawn with more suitable vegetation. It will also encourage more student interaction with the project by converting some of the region into a study area. This will hopefully foster more awareness of the wasteful nature of green grass lawns and our state water predicament.
Goals: Convert an underused lawn on Clark Kerr campus into a more student-friendly area with native drought-resistant plants.
