Title: Green Building Technology at Hartley Nature Center, Duluth, Minnesota
Abstract: "All buildings have an impact on the environment. They consume natural resources when constructed. Pollution is generated when building materials are manufactured. The building's energy use also causes environmental impacts. "Green building" means minimizing the environmental effects of building. Green building requires integrating environmental values into the decision making process during design and construction." Learn more about the process, see a list of their strategies, materials and research resources as well as a slide presentation (powerpoint).
