Marian University in Indianapolis says it's received a $1 million grant to endow a fund for the college's environmental science laboratory.
The gift from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust was announced Thursday. The outdoor lab will be renamed the Nina Mason Pulliam EcoLab.
The EcoLab is a 55-acre historic landscape and protected wetland area that includes a nature center, an outdoor classroom and a camera for observing beavers. Students on the campus do behavioral, hormone, and genetic research on beavers and birds and ecological research.
