U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
Using green building design and construction practices, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Cusano Environmental Education Center (CEEC) Design Team created an educational oasis at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum, demonstrating the importance of the natural world to children and inspiring visitors to become responsible stewards of the environment. The building is designed to use energy efficiently; natural day lighting is supplemented with high-efficiency lighting systems. Recycled newsprint cellulose is used as insulation.
