In 2008, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida launched the “Saving Southwest Florida” Capital Campaign to raise $33 million to protect water, land and wildlife in southwest Florida.   As part of the Campaign, the entire Conservancy Nature Center will undergo many sustainability initiatives, including three new buildings and the renovation of three more.  They have committed to seek out the highest standard for a Sustainable Nature Center, incorporating green features that will help protect the environment and use less energy.
The program will cover the Sustainable Nature Center's Plans
  • Every corner of the  21-acre campus will be part of the effort, which will include ecosystem restoration, habitat protection and careful species management.
  • Sustainable Buildings
  • Three new buildings and the renovation of three others will each meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED standards
  • Target: “Net Zero” Energy Consumption
  • Utilization of an integrated energy consumption approach through geothermal cooling, solar, LED lighting and "smart buildings" technologies.
