KAYSVILLE, Utah (AP) -- The Utah Botanical Center has big plans for a new wetlands center, but needs some big money to get construction under way.

The Wetland Discovery Point will be an indoor-outdoor classroom where visitors can learn about ecology, birds and plants.

Center associated director Dave Anderson says about $1 million in funds has been secured for the project, but another $500,000 is needed before it can start.

The new exhibit will feature a 3,200-square-foot energy efficient building and a boardwalk across a pond.

Opening day is planned for fall 2008.

The botanical center is owned by Utah State University. It hosts more than 4,000 school children a year for education field trips.
