The Center for Conservation was designed with the protection of the natural environment in mind. When converting a 130-year-old farmhouse and former residence into office space, alternative energy sources were used wherever possible.
Come visit our gardens to see how attractive and colorful native plant options can be, and venture inside our office for information on how you can get involved in the important work of The Nature Conservancy.
The Nature Conservancy implemented environmentally-friendly materials and systems into the Center for Conservation. A geothermal heating system uses ground temperature to aid in the heating and cooling of the building, while solar panels cultivate the sun's energy to assist in providing for the electrical needs of the facility. These systems reduce the use of greenhouse gas emitting fossil fuels.
