The native prairie grasses on the grounds surrounding the Canadian Museum for Human Rights are one of many architectural designs meant to represent the Canadian landscape.

The native grasses are low maintenance and part of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights building’s green initiative.

1.86 ha of tall grass prairie species were seeded on the grounds of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is registered as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) building. Native Plant Solutions selected grass species to be planted on the site, seeded the area, and conducted weed control and erosion control during establishment.
