The Jean Blum Environmental Education Center is starting to take shape.  Starting several years ago as the Abe Lincoln Elementary School Prairie.
Here Jean Blum and Fred Faessler poke small holes in the ground for the planting of young prairie plants.
 Here several 4th. Graders are having a good time
picking seeds for planting this fall
You hold the bag while I cut some Big Blue
This is almost as much fun as Recess!!!
Hey, Look at the Grasshopper
Here Kay Barry gently removes the plugs from trays so they can be planted.
Todd Jensen of the City Council and a member of the Abe Prairie
Committee points out to Jim Winkler and other Committee Members
how future plans for 30th. Street will impact the Prairie.
This has been a team effort with support from     Prairie Bluff Chapter of the Prairie Enthusiasts   and  Sugar River Valley Chapter #163  of Pheasants Forever
        Here Sugar River Valley Pheasants Forever Chapter David Wisnefske presents Jean Blum and principal Clyde Sukanen with a check for $1000 to kick of the Environmental Education Project.  Jean, Dave, and Cheri Wesenberg (Abe Kindergarten Teacher) are all Facilitators in the   Leopold Education Project which is the Educational Wing of Pheasants Forever
