“The Building That Teaches”


The Cathance River Ecology Center has stood on the Cathance River Preserve for more than 15 years as a beacon of sustainability. It is known as “the building that teaches”, a testament to its educational focus and power to teach any who visit. Even without the amazing staff members that help educate local students on what lays beyond school doors, the building teaches guests valuable lessons on sustainability and environmental stewardship. Everything about the Ecology Center was built with the environment in mind, from the sustainable wood in its walls to the green electricity powering its lights.
