Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the Sustainability Hub’s physical location is temporarily operating a hybrid work schedule. We continue to offer our services and connect with the community through virtual presentations and social media activity in addition to pre-scheduled Sustainability Hub events.
We look forward to fully reopening and offering tours and access to our community room on a permanent basis.
We’re now proud to offer live virtual presentations so that we may continue providing services and education while working to get the Hub open full time.
Our virtual presentations can be tailored to your group’s interests and therefore vary quite a bit. We’ve given presentations to school groups, summer camps, and other organizations focusing on everything from climate change to food systems.
Generally, we give a bit of background about what we typically do at the Hub before discussing many of the same topics covered in our in-person tours such as renewable energy, ways to reduce your energy usage, and electric vehicles.
If this service is of interest, we would love to hear from you. We’re always eager to collaborate to make our virtual presentations fit the unique needs of each group we work with.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 we are only offering pre-schedule tours or in-person events at the Hub currently.
Our in-person tour takes groups through a 45 minute to 1 hour walk through of our sustainability hub. The hub is laid out like a house, showcasing how consumers can reduce their energy use through smart grid technologies, smart meters, and Energy Star certified appliances. During the tour, groups will learn how these technologies work, hear a little background information about electricity, and discover other easy tips to reduce energy usage and live a more sustainable lifestyle. We also discuss renewable energy, such as the solar panels we installed on the hub’s roof, and the benefits of electric vehicles. Each tour concludes with a Q&A session where we answer any questions our guests have about sustainability, energy, or any of the other material covered on the tour.
Once the Hub is open, check back to schedule a tour.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 we are only offering pre-schedule use of the Community Room.
Our community room offers a meeting place for local businesses and organizations to utilize. It’s also a space we use for interactive learning on our in-person tours. In the community room we have a flat screen TV and audio bar for presentations, a conference phone, and a phone charging station along with tables and seating.
Once the Hub is open, check back to reserve the community room.
