Did you know that Marian University has a sizable area of wetlands to call its own? As part of a commitment to responsible stewardship, Marian University uses its EcoLab as an environmental learning laboratory for Marian students, as well as for K-12 groups and the local community. The EcoLab contains approximately 30 acres of functioning wetland marsh, fen, and swamp habitat. Over 260 species of native plants including 26 sedges, 160+ bird species, and mammals such as beaver, muskrat, mink, and red fox use this island of wetland habitat within the city of Indianapolis.
