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
