7.24 – Sri Venkateswara Swami (Balaji) Temple

We took some time to explore the beautiful building that owns this prairie. It is the regional Hindu temple, located in Aurora IL. It was quite the sight to see every time we looked up from surveying the prairie restoration!

Pretty amazing huh? This site had pretty tough soil which was a pain to get the full 15 cm core from a lot of the time, and the site did have a fair number of weeds. But it sure was beautiful!
