The Berry Prairie: Native Biodiversity in a Rooftop Landscape

A current project of the Institute for the Built Environment, the Berry Center at the University of Wyoming, recently completed an extensive vegetative roof.   The University of Wyoming filled the vegetative roof with plant species found within a 40 mile radius of Laramie.  This roof is a prime example of a building being used as a research and teaching tool.  To read more about the components of the roof, and how it is being used by UW professors and students, visit their blog: http://berryprairie.blogspot.com
