Our Facilities

Wonderful architecture and bright interiors draw children and adults to well-informed speakers, entertainment, meetings of regional groups, and weddings.

Our building is build to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification standards thanks to the help of local collage students. Our building is designed to provide 85% of its own heating and 95% of its own cooling without consuming any energy.

It does this by using:

  • Large double-pane windows on south-facing walls to allow in light and winter sun for heat.

  • Roof overhangs to shade windows from summer sun.

  • Rice straw bales insulation in walls and ceilings slow temperature change.

  • Thick stucco walls, water tanks, and concrete floors slow temperature change.

  • Clerestory windows atop the Pavilion to provide light and air circulation.

  • Solar panels to capture the sun’s energy and provide most electrical needs.
