The city of Lincoln and surrounding areas will get nearly $1.5 million from the Nebraska Environmental Trust to help renovate Centennial Mall, conserve rare saline wetlands and develop a prairie corridor.
The funds were part of $24.2 million in grants approved by the 14-member trust board on Thursday. The grant money comes from lottery proceeds.
The Lincoln Parks Foundation received $200,000 to help restore Centennial Mall near the State Capitol and the city received $730,000 to help acquire and restore rare saline wetlands.
The Haines Branch Prairie Corridor project near Lincoln also received $500,000 to develop a six-mile-long prairie corridor that will include a recreational trail.
