Prairie House Open House - Green Building Practices
Fitting with this year's EarthFest theme Build Better, Build Green we welcome the community to tour our new green built Prairie House education building.
Seated in the heart of the park, this new classroom was designed to embrace green elements such as solar energy, a pellet fuel furnace, thermal mass floors, a dual flue chimney for chimney swifts and more.
The designing architect CRW will be onsite to talk about the design process and the green features which were integrated in to the final construction. Solar connections will also be available to talk about the building 's solar panel system and its energy production.
