JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) – ETSU unveiled a pollinator-friendly garden on its campus Wednesday afternoon.
ETSU faculty said they hope this project attracts and sustains a variety of pollinators such as caterpillars, butterflies, and honeybees among others.
The garden is located near the art annex and is part of a much larger concept called the pollinator pathway.
“Collaborative projects like this will inspire students and others in our community to develop new skills and to see a legacy, that of a healthy and sustainable environment, that belongs to them and to future generations,” Murray added.
The pathway will include sites from the ETSU campus along the State of Franklin to downtown Johnson City, including Founders Park.
The Johnson City Public Library already has a garden in place.
