In cooperation with the Iowa Living Roadway Trust Fund (LRTF), Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, is reconstructing 14 acres of native prairie in the center of campus. The University received a grant from the LRTF in 2009 and has applied in 2010 again for additional funding to complete the project.

Establishing prairies throughout the Midwest region of the United States is often accomplished with the use of chemical herbicides. MUM, with LRTF's support, is testing the feasibility of alternative, sustainable methods. The University is committed to sustainable landscaping ethics and wants to create an inviting and publicly accessible outdoor classroom environment with educational displays.

'We wish to inspire and educate the general public, visitors, our university students, younger students at our K-12 school and other schools in the Greater Prairie Area Education Agency, and create a resource that will encourage eco-tourism and eco-volunteerism,' said Kathy Brooks, Project Manager.
