BU Science Labs receive Greener Towns grant.

The Bellevue University Science Lab was awarded funding from the Greener Towns Program to complete public landscape improvements on their campus. This is one of 14 projects in the state to receive funding aimed at improving green infrastructure for pollinator habitat, managing storm water or accomplishing other economic, environmental, aesthetic and social goals.


Dr. Tyler Moore applied for the funds and will coordinate the project to be completed in 2019. The Greener Towns program will provide $16,177.50 in funding that will be matched by community efforts. One of the main goals of the project is the completion of a native garden area as part of the larger outdoor sustainability lab which is planned to be constructed later this year.

The Greener Towns and Community as Habitat programs are coordinated by the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum and funded by the Nebraska Environmental Trust, a beneficiary of the Nebraska Lottery.
