Living Building Tour
January 15—12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFREE
Did you know the Hitchcock Center is a Living Building? It is the 23rd building in the world and the 4th in Massachusetts to achieve the Certified Living Building designation! It is designed to model systems in nature, it’s net zero energy and water, has composting toilets, and has been made with responsibly sourced non-toxic materials. Come find out what makes our building a special teaching tool empowering visitors to ask, “what does sustainability look like in the built environment and in my community?” Bring your questions so we can learn together. Tours typically last from 1-1.5 hours.
First Fridays at 4pm: January 3, February 7, March 6
Third Wednesdays at 12pm: January 15, February 19, March 18
