    Suhail Barot, a graduate student in electrical and computer engineering and chair of the Student Sustainability Committee, removes a prairie grass seedling from a flat in preparation for planting. The committee funded the purchase of the seedlings for the installation of a sustainable prairie garden at the Veterinary Medicine Basic Sciences Building. On June 6, volunteers from campus and the community planted the seedlings, which will provide a habitat for native insect and vertebrate species and a teaching tool on prairie flora.
