Union College and several partners from throughout the local community have completed a project to improve butterfly habitats on the college campus. Students from Union College, Barbourville Independent Schools and the Bell County Technology Center installed plants and garden benches for Monarch butterfly habitats at two locations – Union’s Center for Civic Engagement and the Turner Outdoor Center. The project was student led, but funded through a grant from Kentucky PRIDE.
