Kids, teachers and parents at the Ann Arbor Learning Community have started a wildflower prairie with plants they grew from seed. They're hoping to attract butterflies and songbirds.
They started early in the season to remove turfgrass from their site. (I think this was in 2007)

By July 2008, the prairie was looking terrific. (More photos coming soon.)
AALC is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, near State St. and Ellsworth Rd.
