Part of Westminster’s commitment as a PC(USA) congregation is to use sustainable practices as we care for our building and grounds. That’s why there are new native plants in our parking lot, around the library, now taking root in their new home.

Plants for Birds: Change your Yard, Community, and Climate with Native Plants
Spring Creek Prairie invites you to join us via Zoom on Tuesday, August 25 from 6:30-8:00 pm to learn about native plants, birds, and a promising, new faith coalition. This event is kindly hosted by the Green Sanctuary Committee at Unitarian Church of Lincoln and the Green@Heart team from Westminster Presbyterian. The program will feature the Audubon Nebraska “Plants for Birds” team, Cacey Wilken and Jason “the Birdnerd” St. Sauver, followed by time for questions and discussion.
Topics will include information about the Plants for Birds program, native plantings in the urban and suburban landscape, advocating for native plant use at the city and state levels, and a growing vision for a faith and climate coalition. Our hope is to foster discussion and excitement around collective and individual action in support of creation care in Lincoln’s faith community and beyond.
