Expand the Library Bridge Green Wall

Working with the MSU Office of Sustainability (OOS) and Infrastructure Planning and Facilities (IPF) Landscape Services, a team of students from Sustainable Spartans officially installed the “Green Wall” at the MSU Library Bridge near the Spartan Football Stadium in May of 2021. Built to enhance the natural beauty and peaceful environment around the Red Cedar River, the Green Wall consists of two 60-foot long vertical garden systems lining the walls of the bridge with planter boxes made from recycled automobile plastic. 

Gifts will Enhance the future of the Green Wall!

Envisioned as a pilot project for future expansion, IPF and Sustainable Spartans are now raising funds to add necessary improvements to the Green Wall. Donations to this campaign will fund the purchase of supplies, building equipment, seasonal plants, and flower boxes so the Green Wall can stretch across the entire Library Bridge, as currently there are several sections of the bridge that are not unified with the rest of the Green Wall. Gifts will also be used to add an irrigation system to planting boxes which will ensure that the Green Wall can remain vibrant and beautiful throughout the seasons. Additionally, we seek to replace outdated bollards on the bridge and integrate them into the design of the Green Wall.

These enhancements cost $20,000. IPF has generously committed $10,000 to the expansion of the Green Wall and nearly $5,500 has been raised to date by the Spartan community for the expansion. We currently need to raise an additional $4,500 to achieve our goal. Make a gift today to help us expand the Green Wall! 

Your Donation Makes a Difference!

The Green Wall has quickly become a beloved gathering place for students, alumni, and visitors on campus. Your support today will provide the resources needed to expand and enrich this vibrant MSU landmark so future Spartans can continue to enjoy it for generations to come.
