Vertebrate Zoology Students at PGT

Jim D. Wilson and his biology students from William Woods University explored the Prairie Garden Trust on Thursday to see what vertebrate life they could find. They’ll be returning next week to seine the ponds and creek.

We expect students from Westminster College on Sunday and Wednesday next week, too. And yesterday morning some of the Bittersweet Garden Club members returned to gather a few lotus leaves for casts that they’ll be making. So these diverse habitats are getting lots of use of exactly the sort we hope to share.


About Lorna Domke

Since 1981, I've lived on the land that surrounds, and will eventually be integrated into, the Prairie Garden Trust with my husband, Henry. Our long-term goal is to build on what Henry's parents began and create a nature garden of sorts for others to enjoy. Over the years I've planted prairie, mowed trails, created a website and done whatever I could to enhance what's here. For a few years I served on the board of the Missouri Prairie Foundation. Since I retired from my role as Outreach & Education Division Chief at the Missouri Dept. of Conservation in 2010, I've started to put more time into the PGT. The PGT Nature Garden blog is one result.
