Native Prairie Islands of Cheyenne

The flowers are in bloom! We are happy to use this page to share photos from local “Native Prairie Islands“. While some will be on private land, others you can visit and enjoy yourself.

This is the case with our first success story, the Native Prairie Island at Bella Fuoco Wood-fired Pizza owned by Kelly and Eric Dalton. Visit their garden at 2115 Warren Avenue and be sure to check out their back patio with more flowers and a mural by Cheyenne artist Jordan Dean.

Kelly and Eric plan to expand their front garden over the coming years. The back patio is a shady delight, with more native plants complimented by a colorful mural by Cheyenne’s own Jordan Dean. What a delightful place to enjoy a leisurely lunch or dinner. Check it out and congratulations Kelly and Eric!
