Gathering moss: Topiary elk goes green near Memorial Drive roundabout

Diane Albertson, a horticulturist in the city of Idaho Falls' Parks and Recreation Department, adds moss to an elk sculpture near the roundabout on Memorial Drive. The bronze topiary sculpture is by Jason Brown, and is the first of a series funded by a $4,000 grant from the Maxine Elliott Foundation. Albertson said the project was begun in June, and that they eventually hope to do three or four.
