This report was written by Lawrence Cwik as part of his participation in the Teacher Research Associates (TRAC) Program at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia Illinois, summer 1994.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the personnel at the Lederman Science Education Center and the Department of Roads and Grounds for all the wonderful help they have given me in the preparation of this report. I would particularly want to acknowledge the assistance of Bob Lootens, who has shared with me his vast knowledge and practical experience with prairie restoration, maintenance, and plant identification. I would also like to thank Kris Ciesemier and Laura Vasquez for all their assistance and for allowing me the opportunity to participate in the Teacher Research Associates (TRAC) Program this summer at Fermilab.
