Default "Turf to Prairie" guide for subdivisions

This planning department just published a guide for subdivisions, to encourage neighborhoods to convert their grass lawns to native prairies.

Kudos to Louis Clayton and others at the St. Louis County Planning Department!

Great news, Calliandra!

The photos in the brochure look great. Maybe the tide is turning. More and more people are becoming enamored by the beauty of nature and knowing that they *can* make a difference.
