The Saltonstall Nature Center (pictured) at Mass Audubon's Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary has not used any fossil fuels for heating and has saved more than 2 million gallons of water over the past 25 years. And its 128-panel solar array produces more electricity than the building uses.
The nature center, amazingly, has almost no carbon footprint. View its sustainable features with WCVB-TV anchor David Brown.
Visit Broadmoor and take a self-guided audio tour featuring the building's green elements, many of which can be applied to homes.
Plans are underway to incorporate even more sustainable features into the Saltonstall Nature Center.
