Climate Action at BNC
Boston Nature Center & Wildlife Sanctuary is doing its part to leave a lighter footprint on the environment by utilizing green technology.
Boston Nature Center undertook a multi-faceted program that combined new solar energy infrastructure and retrofitting of buildings. Rooftop solar panels were added to the sanctuary’s George Robert White Environmental Conservation Center, along with a new ground-mounted array erected nearby. All of this means that the sanctuary now produces more energy than it uses.

The George Robert White Environmental Conservation Center grew out of a strong commitment to conservation and environmental protection from both the City of Boston and Mass Audubon. This building consumes 30% less energy than a conventional building, uses fewer natural resources, and creates a safer, healthier space for occupants.
