  • Reducing our energy costs with solar panels and tubular skylights
  • Reducing our water consumption
  • Reducing light pollution
  • Reducing pollutants from parking lot runoff with a native vegetated bioswale
  • Increasing suitable habitat for insects, birds, and butterflies with native plants and shrubs
  • Increasing awareness of energy conservation through education
