Dr. Steve Skattebo, former treasurer of the OMNI Center for Peace, Justice, and Ecology and frequent volunteer remover of Japanese honeysuckle vines and roots from World Peace Wetland Prairie, was working the registration table at Friday night's OMNI membership dinner.
OMNI donated one-fifth of the purchase price of the land for World Peace Wetland Prairie to the City of Fayetteville, later administered donations for the Elleya Richardson Butterfly Garden at WPWP and now manages a tree fund contributed to OMNI, part of which is slated to help purchase trees for the International Grove on the southeastern half acre of the nature park. Fran Alexander and other members of Friends for Fayetteville donated the money slated for Neighborwoods tree planting to OMNI to continue the work they had been doing.
