Grant For QC Botanical Center

Posted: Updated:

Museums across Illinois are set to receive money for renovations and new exhibits including one in the QCA.

The Governor's office announced the Quad City Botanical Center in Rock Island will get $520-thousand. The grant money will help complete a "Mini-Mississippi River" exhibit.

"We are able to give an interactive play experience for kids and families that includes everything from the headwaters of our mini-Mississippi all the way down to the delta," Executive director Ami Jenkins said.

Twenty million dollars total will be awarded to 47 museums across the state.
