Classrooms, museums, nature centers and other educational venues across the Tallgrass Prairie region have expressed interest in displaying a prairie root for their educational programming. The cost to produce each root production and preservation can be prohibitive, however. If you would like to help sponsor a root display or banner, contact Laura Jackson at laura.l.jackson@uni.edu for more details.
