  1. El Tigre • TJ McClain • Keegan Hansen • Jake Snodgrass

  2. Abstract Project: • To design and plant six planters • in native tall grass prairie. Conclusion of Project: We successfully planted 7 various plants, including forbs and wild grasses, with only one mortality.

  3. The goal of this project is to bring back plant life and beauty that may no longer exist in Northwest Arkansas. Also, educate others and allow them to become aware of what was once present in Northwest Arkansas • The plants we used are: • Baptista sphaerocarpa • Solidago rigida • Aster paludosus • Schizachyrium scoparium • Silphium perfoliatum • Manfreda virginica • Vernonia arkansana Introduction

  4. The planters are located along the scenic trail, behind the NWACC campus. We obtained our plants through NWACC from the Pine Ridge Gardens. Through the course of the semester we maintained and planted 7 plants in planter box 5. Materials & methods

  6. Baptisiasphaerocarpa • Yellow wild Indigo • 2 to 3 feet • May – June • Low maintenance

  7. Solidago rigida • Goldenrod • 3 to 5 feet • August – September • Medium maintenance

  8. Aster paludosus • Tennessee Aster • 24 to 36 inches • Late summer – early fall • Color: lavender / blue

  9. Schizachyrium scoparium • Little bluestem • 2 to 4 feet • August - February • Low maintenance

  10. Silphium perfoliatum • Cup plant • 4 to 8 feet • July – September • Low maintenance

  11. Manfreda virginica • False aloe • 3 to 6 feet • July – October • Low maintenance

  12. Vernonia arkansana • Great Ironweed • 2 to 6 feet • Late summer – early fall • Ozark Ironweed / Curlytop Ironweed

  13. While we cannot give accurate results if our plants will bloom as we planned, they're looking much healthier than when we first planted them. We are very optimistic that our plants will continue to thrive in the natural environment. We also hope to provide future students with a healthy, living laboratory! Results

  14. We feel that this project taught us a lot about plant biology in a hands on and fun way. This project will help the community by making it more pleasant and allowing others to learn more about what was once present in this area of Northwest Arkansas. Conclusion

  16. This semester we focused on learning about tall grass prairie and savannah restoration, including how to prepare planter boxes, transplant tall grass prairie plants for establishment, and, in addition, document all species observed in the nature area. Content objectives
