Learn about "green building"
Our Energy Star Award-winning building is a great place to learn about building techniques, materials and systems that conserve natural resources and wildlife habitat.
- Many recycled materials (carpet is 100 percent recycled plastic)
- Sky lights let in natural lighting
- Ground source heat pumps provide both heating and cooling.

Walk, explore and fish
Our 26-acre campus is open nights and weekends for the following activities:
