Des Moines, January 31,
2006 - The push to bring a rain forest to Des Moines isn't over yet. Today
city leaders sent a letter to rain forest organizers expressing their interest
in the project. However Des Moines isn't alone, there are six other cities
that have also expressed interest in attracting the Environmental Project.
Des Moines city leaders say they're still in meetings about the project
and at this point don't have solid answers on where the indoor rain forest
would be located. Rain forest organizers hope to have a city selected by
the end of March.
