We are the first nature center to receive Green Business Partnership certification. Through the certification process, we developed a comprehensive sustainability policy that addresses the Nature Center’s energy, water, land use, transportation, and materials management. Watch a video about how we did it.

Our green business practices are demonstrated in our day-to-day operations, programs, and events. Here are some of the changes that we’ve accomplished:

  • All green cleaning products
  • All 100% recycled paper and a significant conversion to e-communications
  • Comprehensive recycling and composting for internal operations
  • Energy conservation has reduced consumption by over 40%
  • Carry-in carry-out policy
