The Forest Center, a classroom and meeting space, at the Park
is constructed entirely with FSC (Forest Stewardship Council)
certified wood and has been awarded Platinum Leadership in Energy
and Environmental Design (LEED) certification by the U.S. Green
Building Council. The Center uses renewable, non-toxic materials
throughout including wood rather than sheetrock for interior walls,
including white pine, ash, black cherry, hemlock, and red oak - all
harvested from the Park's forest, the oldest professionally managed
woodland in North America.
