Our two-acre prairie demonstration project at Aldo Leopold Middle School in Burlington continues to expand. We recently added 320 grasses and forbs, so we now exceed 3,000 plug plantings, which represent over 70 species. Plus, the 52 trees from our April 2012 DNR Trees for Teens planting continue to thrive. And, thanks to the ALMS PTO, we'll soon be adding bird feeders for the winter, so the kids can feed and monitor the different birds that stay through the cold months in Iowa. Members of our local Leopold Heritage Group continue to work closely with the school district so the outdoor classroom can be a valuable asset for students and teachers, and the community.

On Earth Day the Center Comers 4-H Club partnered with the Friends of Prairie Rose State Park to plant 25 trees that were obtained through the Trees for Kids Grant throught the State of Iowa.  We had a great day.  The kids learned about the importance of trees to humans and wildlife and proper planting techniques.  A great example of the community working together for improvements.

About 220 Burlington students joined members of Leopold Heritage Group yesterday to plant over 50 trees at the new Aldo Leopold Middle School prairie site. This project has been designed by Steve Brower, built with volunteer labor, and has garnered the support of many businesses, foundations, and civic groups. LHG will continue fundraising to extend the construction this summer.Thanks to Laura Wagner for her assistance with the tree planting project.
