Prairie Ecology Bus Center (PEBC)


Originally started as a mobile outreach program, the PEBC has been delivering outdoor natural resource programming to youth and adults using an innovative "tool" - the Ecology Bus. Recently the PEBC partnered with the City and County to acquire a shared use building. The SWP will assist the PEBC to make the PEBC portion of the space operational and allow the PEBC to develop its capacity to serve a wider audience and also better serve the community.



Funds are being sought in this next phase to create the infrastructure to allow for programs to take place. The furniture, equipment and displays will be employed for many years to come and will be a long-term investment for the project. Funds will provide for the following components with explanation of items/costs to follow.

Description of project items:


SWP- $30,000
