Special to The Hays Daily News

On April 24, 20 students from the home horticulture class at Fort Hays State University and their instructor, Jean Gleichsner, performed landscape maintenance at the Humane Society of the High Plains' Virginia Miller Animal Shelter.

The site had been relandscaped in spring 2006 as a project for the home horticulture class.

Since then, the FHSU class has visited the site annually to perform lawn maintenance.

Students cut back ornamental grasses, fertilized, weeded, pruned shrubs and mulched the entire site.

Partial funding for the project was provided by Walmart. Tools and equipment were provided by the Fort Hays State University Grounds Department.

The project was done at no cost to the shelter.
