GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The Greenburgh Nature Center has asked the Town Board to approve a resolution Wednesday authorizing the tax-free construction of a butterfly arbor at the center.

The Town Board is expected to approve the request at its Wednesday night meeting. Private donations, not taxpayer dollars, will be used to pay for this enhancement.

The nature center, a 33-acre preserve on Dromore Road off Central Avenue, with trails, a pond, gardens and a native plant meadow, serves about 80,000 visitors annually and sponsors numerous environmental education programs and after school events. A unique playground was built at the center a few years ago.

The town owns the land that the nature center occupies. The construction of the proposed butterfly arbor, to be situated in the native plant meadow, will expand the Nature Center's outdoor nature education programs and events.

The arbor's unusual design will allow the center to utilize the space as a seasonal outdoor classroom, enhancing the nature education experience, as well as house a butterfly exhibit each summer.
