MBGNA gets habitat grant

Matthaei Botanical Gardens & Nichols Arboretum received a new grant to support habitat restoration for the eastern massasauga rattlesnake, a species of special concern in Michigan. The snake thrives on the Botanical Gardens property. The grant is from the Sustain Our Great Lakes program, coordinated by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. It allows the university to retain a full-time staff person to focus on the project.



Shelie Miller, an assistant professor of natural resources and environment, School of Natural Resources and Environment, says her favorite campus spot is, "The arch that runs under Dennison."
