Thanks to TD Friends of Environment

Thanks to another grant from TD Friends of the Environment, for 2015, we were able to remove invasive plants and replant an acre of prairie into native grasses and wildflowers. We also replanted an area in the southeast corner with Carolinian trees and shrubs. This area used to flood, and the City improved the drainage in 2013.
