Rachel Snyder Memorial Landscape Award
2007 Recipient #2
City of Kansas City, Department of Air Quality • Kansas City, KS
As part of the Department of Air Quality’s (DAQ) Clean Air Lawn Care program, the DAQ recently began a native prairie restoration project on the grounds surrounding the Unified Government Public Health Department (619 Ann Avenue, Kansas City, KS 66101). A prairie is the native grassland of central North America. Hundreds of species of grasses, wildflowers, butterflies, birds, and other animals make up this rich ecosystem. The use of native prairie grasses in small-scale landscaping provides a low-maintenance, aesthetically pleasing turf grass alternative.
