EarthWays Center of Missouri Botanical Garden in partnership with Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD)

 

 

The EarthWays Center (EWC) is the sustainability division of the Missouri Botanical Garden. EWC is devoted to an increasingly vital goal: conservation of energy and other natural resources for the future while meeting the needs of the current generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs - otherwise known as sustainability.

While the Garden is a botanical institution focusing on plants themselves, the EarthWays Center zeroes in on what botanical researchers agree is the greatest threat to plants and the environment: people. Through programs that support schools, green building professionals, buisnesses, municipalities, and the general public, EWC encourages people to better understand and take part in creating a healthier ecosystem for all living things. 

EarthWays Center has partnered with Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District to provide educational opportunties around the topic of stormwater and water quality issues to increase public awareness about watersheds and clean water issues. The purpose of this project is to prevent harmful pollutants from being carried by stormwater runoff into local water bodies and to improve water quality in the area.
