Our Offices, Classrooms and Exhibit Room

Flat Rock Brook Exhibit Room Cork floor was installed in the main exhibit room. Cork is a sustainable, durable material that limits deforestation impacts.  Cork is harvested from the bark of cork oak trees; it is peeled off the tree without hurting the tree itself, making it a renewable resource with limited environmental impacts.
bamboo 807674 640 The recently renovated main staff office has a bamboo floor, another sustainably harvested material. Bamboo is related to grass, and it grows very rapidly; the stems are harvested and the roots quickly regenerate a new stem much faster than hardwood trees.
logo fsc The wood used to renovate the classroom cabinets is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as sustainably harvested.  FSC only certifies wood if it is harvested is a sustainable manner, taking into account environmental, social and economic criteria.
ice stone The countertops in the classroom are made from icestone, a durable product containing 70% recycled glass by weight. This material saves  resources needed to manufacture countertops and prevents solid waste from going to landfills.
bin 306333 640 The paper used in our office copy machine and printers has 50% recycled content. Using recycled paper decreases the need to log trees, decreases energy and water pollution produced by manufacturing new paper, and decreases the amount of material that goes to landfills.
