The Dr. Bettye Myers Butterfly Garden
About the Project
TWU has approved a native plant butterfly garden project for the Denton campus that will attract and sustain monarchs and many other butterflies, bees, and birds. The butterfly garden is being supported financially by a generous grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (grant number: 83677401), funding from the university, and private donations.

Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced more than $557,000 in funding for eight student teams as part of Phase II of the People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) grant program. This includes $74,932 to a team at Texas Woman’s University in Denton for their work to develop sustainable pollinator gardens for habitat, water conservation, and education.
“These students are applying what they have learned in the classroom to create innovative solutions to environmental challenges,” said EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. “These awards support the next generation of scientists and engineers in their commitment to environmental protection, while helping states, tribes, and local communities find solutions to their environmental issues.”
