Greenwood Opens ‘Water Quality’ Educational Nature Center
The city of Greenwood opened a new nature center last month that aims to educate students and the community on the importance of water quality.
According to a press release issued by the city, Greenwood officially opened its new Stormwater Testing Lab and Nature Center Sept. 20.
Located just south of Children’s Garden Park at the corner of East Main Street and South Washington Street, the Stormwater Testing Lab and Nature Center will offer free educational programming for both students and members of the community.
The center will provide information and first-hand experience with factors impacting local water quality, including the importance of native plants, invasive plant species in Indiana and why it is critical to keep local creeks, streams and lakes clean, the release said.
The outdoor components of the Nature Center were funded through a $5,000 grant from PIG Difference, a national organization that funds habitat restoration projects.
