Tours

Tours of the Environmental Technology Center offer the potential to learn about a wide range of fascinating topics, such as renewable energy, environmentally friendly building materials, passive and active solar design, and the efficient use of energy.

Since the ETC is used extensively as a classroom and seminar space, visitors can be welcomed only with prior arrangement.

Please Note:

Tours of the ETC are limited by staff availability as well as classes and events scheduled in the building. If you would like to schedule a tour, please contact us at least two weeks in advance of the date you are requesting.

Below is a description of the tours we are currently offering:

General Guided Tours

Guided Tours of approximately 20-30 minutes are offered by appointment during the week, as our schedule permits. The public tours are designed specifically for the general public, including families.

Professional Tours

Specialty tours for professional groups and college level classes are available with senior staff. In addition to the "big picture," these tours are often very specific and technical in nature. Tours are available Monday through Friday by appointment.

School Tours

School tours are available for grades K-12. Guided Tours of approximately 20-30 minutes are offered by appointment during the week, as our schedule permits. School groups are required to provide one adult for every ten children. These adults are responsible for the students throughout the tour.
