Butterfly on wetlands plant

UNCG has a commitment to environmental preservation and sustainability.

Thanks to a $46,112 grant from the Duke Energy Water Resources Fund, two wetlands will be constructed on campus near North Buffalo Creek, beginning in March 2017.

As a result of this construction, wetland ecology and water chemistry will be integrated into teaching and learning experiences in the sciences and education at UNCG. Environmental and nature studies will be integrated into many other departments, including Environmental Studies and English. The wetlands will also be a resource for K-12 education and the greater community.
