Tour Our Building

The Environmental Center - Front view






Our grounds are attractively landscaped with lawn, trees, native plants, a small patio, a picnic table in the shade, and our learning garden adjacent to our building. A large, shaded deck (~300 sq. ft. ) is great for outdoor events, from late spring through early fall. The Garden is also available for rent with several picnic tables and benches, plus some shaded areas for warmer days.

Inside our building, we rent out two different event spaces. Both rooms come equipped with tables and chairs, white boards and projector screens. Between the two rooms is a small lobby (~ 150 sq. ft.), a small kitchen and two bathrooms near the rear entrance. Wireless internet connection is available throughout the building 24/7. Disabled access is available through the rear door. One of our two restrooms has disabled access.  An LCD projector and a sound system for presentations and movies/videos are available to rent for a small fee.
