HMMA DONATES $25,000 TO TROY UNIVERSITY FOR ARBORETUM UPGRADES
Troy, Ala., – On Friday, October 14, 2022, Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama presented a $25,000 grant to Troy University for continued upgrades to the university’s arboretum grounds.
Troy University’s arboretum encompasses 75 acres and features seven and a half miles of nature trails, over 500 identified plant species, a pond, an outdoor classroom and an indoor classroom. The funds from HMMA will be used to replace the bridge to the island in Mullis Pond, clear fallen trees, purchase and install a floating pier for class use, plant native wetland plants around the pond and install trash cans.
“We greatly appreciate all the help we’ve received from Hyundai,” said Dr. Alvin Diamond, Troy University biology professor and arboretum director. “This really will help to improve the arboretum and make it more accessible, not only for the classes and students, but also for the general public and citizens of Troy.”
