Creekside Outdoor Center for Environmental Education
Located along Sugar Creek, about five miles north of Lincoln, Creekside the Outdoor Center for Environmental Education will be an experiential outdoor classroom featuring an outdoor teaching pavilion, insectarium, greenhouse, and a restored prairie. It will include parking space, bioswales, rain gardens, and boardwalks and sidewalks to make the site handicapped-accessible. When complete it will be powered by solar panels and a wind generator.
The site is recognized by the scientific community for its biological diversity and historical and archeological significance.
In addition to being used for LC science curriculum, site will be available to area educators for teaching students of all ages about land use, environmental science and conservation.
The Center will provide opportunities for students of the college and the local education system as well as a variety of research projects. In addition, the community would also be provided opportunities to use the facility.
