Environmental Nature Center

The main hall of this nature learning center is underneath a low-slung roof, and is flanked by a wall of glass. The building, true to its name, is built with many natural elements. Exposed wood beams and siding can be found throughout. This building plays out like a modern image of the traditional wood cabin. Furthermore, the native vegetation found on the center’s grounds blends well with Orange County’s first LEED Platinum certified building. (2017)
