Coming Soon!
The Philo High School Field Ecology classes have been developing 1/3 to 1/2 acre into a Prairie. The site will be planted with grasses and forbs (flowering plants) that are native to Ohio and would have been found in a tall-grass prairie typical of Ohio.

This project has been ongoing for several years. I could write pages about prairies and the benefits of using native plants in landscapes but like me most of you don’t have time to read long passages.

Please take the time to view the power point here and to visit the following website:

I would appreciate any comments or questions regarding this project at richard.green@franklinlocalschools.org.
