The Hills Are Alive

The photos of the Berry Prairie just can't do it justice, it's so much more inviting and interesting than a picture can portray!  The hills add a great vertical dimension, tucking and rolling through the 3600 sq. ft. of roof.  Each mound is home to scores of plants, ranging from cacti and penstemon in the prairie section to clematis and pasqueflower in the foothills and phlox and sedge in the alpine.  The hills are alive!

If you live in Laramie, you are welcome to come by the Berry Center's green roof to take a gander through the garden during daylight hours.  If you don't live in Laramie, here are a few more photos that hopefully capture the vibrancy of the new Berry Prairie.
