University of North Carolina at Greensboro Wetlands Development

University of North Carolina at Greensboro - Office of Sponsored Programs, Greensboro, NC
Greensboro

This project will construct two wetlands on the UNCG campus to improve water quality and increase education, community outreach, research and campus beautification. Additionally, wetland maintenance will be integrated into UNCG's STEM curriculum.

Counties Impacted:

  • Guilford County, NC

​When we modify ecosystems, we often lose that capability of providing ecosystem services. Restoring wetlands is a way to improve water quality and increase biodiversity. Since we are on UNCG campus, this can also be used as a research and education tool.

-Dr. Parke Rublee, Professor of Biology, UNCG
