The Lansing School District's Ebersole Environmental Center will stay open this winter.
The center is located on the west side of the state in Wayland.
A motion to close it during the winter months failed Thursday. The district had proposed it to save money in the budget.
Students go to Ebersole for overnight field trips to learn about the environment and other things.
The center sees anywhere from 3,000-5,000 students a year.
