|Wild About Wildflowers Video|
A Tapestry of Learning: Creating School Natural Areas
These new instructional offerings mix beautiful footage and modern graphics with professional narration and inspiring music. The result is a showcase of Midwestern seasonal blooms, their identities and habitats. Wildflowers are the stars, but there's much more than pretty images. Landowners learn how to get dirt on their hands -- the real key to growing success in both small plots (next to the backyard patio, along the front sidewalk) and large parcels (whole-lawn conversions, restored native prairies).
Produced by Tom Huggler, a landowner and conservationist who replaced most of his sprawling lawn in southern Michigan with native blooms and grasses, Wild About Wildflowers is available in both VHS videotape and interactive CD-Rom, complete with Internet links to dozens of websites. The Oakland (Mich.) Chapter of Wild Ones co-sponsored the production of the CD-Rom.
