You Can Grow a Greener Town
Added property values, higher energy savings, more opportunities for recreation and better well-being, cleaner air and water...there are many reasons to become a Greener Town. We created this publication to show how people across Nebraska are using plants to solve problems in their communities. Take a look for some inspiration, and feel free to share it with a neighbor, local advocate or elected official to start a conversation.
What Does It Mean to Be Green?
Here's what we think about when envisioning the possibilities for a Greener Town.
Native and well-adapted plants offer many benefits.
Trees shade and shelter us, reduce energy use, offer year-round beauty and much more.
Water is essential. We need to conserve, protect and reduce its use.
Biodiversity is a cornerstone of any healthy ecosystem.
