New Prairie Acreage Planted... The Coneflower Prairie (70 acres) was planted Monday and Tuesday of this week by Feder’s Prairie Seed Co. The rain and snow of the coming days will ensure that the seed has good contact with the soil, and the cold will keep the seeds from germinating. Come spring the seeds will be ready to germinate as soon as the soil temperature warms up. Also in the spring, the Arb staff will need volunteers to help plant species that are more successful when transplanted rather than planted by seed. Though the prairie is planted, it will take a few years before it "looks like a prairie." The first five years it will be mowed, burned, and managed to aggressively keep weeds out and give the prairie species time to get established. Take a walk and check out the Coneflower Prairie!

Employee and Retiree Flu Shot Clinic... On Tuesday, Nov. 11, from 7 to 11 a.m. and from noon to 4 p.m., flu shots will be offered to Gustavus employees and retirees on a first-come, first-served basis in Alumni Hall.

The cost of the flu shot is $23.

GTS Strategic Planning Meetings Scheduled... The Gustavus Technology Services Planning Core Committee has received a charge from the President’s Cabinet to develop a strategic plan for technology and technology services at Gustavus.

To that end, several open meetings of administrators/staff, faculty, and students will be conducted. These meetings will be an opportunity for any Gustavus community member to share their ideas and vision for technology and technology services looking toward 2020. The meetings will be an opportunity for the Core Committee members to listen and gather insight from all Gustavus community members in order to craft a strategic plan that is inclusive, bold, and visionary. To facilitate the gathering of information for the Core Committee, a variety of meetings is planned so that members of the Gustavus community may self-select into a meeting that is more focused on their particular area of service to Gustavus (administrators/staff, students, and faculty):
