Mullen Grade School Receives Nature in Neighborhoods Grant

      The Nature in Neighborhoods grant supports hands-on activities and environmental education programs that protect and contribute to watershed health in the District. The program connects community-minded people to their neighborhoods, natural areas, backyards and beyond. In addition, this program is intended to encourage awareness, appreciation, knowledge and active conservation of natural resources.  The Upper Loup NRD was honored to reward the Mullen Grade School with this Grant.               
    “We wanted to beautify a scarred area,” said Roxann Brown, Mullen Elementary teacher. And that is just what they did. Students helped with planting flowers, decorating stepping stones, moving dirt and placing landscaping materials in the area northeast of the grade school. A bench was built in the middle of the area to sit and enjoy the outdoors, and even catch a few butterflies landing on the flowers.            
   For more information about the Nature in Neighborhoods grant or how you or your organization can apply for the grant, please visit our website at www.upperloupnrd.org/nature-in-neighborhoods/
