08.26.13 prairie on fire !

I mentioned ┬áthat we made a trip to Morris, MN the other day. Today I’m excited to share the reason for our trip!

The University of Minnesota – Morris purchased these five pictures for the new, sustainable Green Prairie Living & Learning Community building on campus. That means the prints are also part of the University’s permanent collection!

These pictures are part of the ‘Winter Prairie’ series I worked on in 2013 featuring images from the urban prairie restoration garden near my home. I’m pleased that these wild prairie darlings are now permanently situated in their natural environment: a true prairie ecosystem in western Minnesota.

08.24.13 road trip

The other day we enjoyed a visit to the West Central Research and Outreach Center at the University of Minnesota – Morris. Me in a large public garden is pretty much like a kid in a candy store. Minus the stomach ache. More on that trip to Morris coming soon…
