Green Roof - Berman Museum of Art

Organic Farm
The Organic Farm was established in 2004 and what was once an organic garden has transformed into an organic farm, now home to chickens and bees! Learn more about the Organic Garden>

Naturalized Stormwater Basin
The naturalized stormwater basin was built in 2004 from a retention basin on campus, and today it is home to a wide array of plants and wildlife.  Classes use the area for outdoor education purposes and even research, while other members of the community like to sit and read a book while looking at the beautiful scenery.  Learn more about the basin>

Recycling and Composting
While on the tour, your guide will show you the different types of recycling bins here on campus, and the compost bins that are used by Dining Services.  You will also see where all of the leaves are composted during the fall semester, right here on campus. Learn more about recycling >>
