The entire 180-acre Springs Preserve campus is a living example of sustainable living, design and architecture. Its buildings are among the most "green" in the nation. The Preserve implemented design and construction techniques that follow guidelines created by the U.S. Green Building Council, meeting platinum Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) requirements.
In addition, the Preserve features specific educational resources for sustainable living, including a multitude of exhibits inside our Desert Living Center focused on clean energy, green building practices, recycling and more. Weekly classes and workshops offer focused instruction on topics such as composting, gardening and water-smart landscaping. In the 8-acre Gardens, visitors can be inspired by thousands of desert-friendly plants, a bio-filtration wetland area and demonstrations of sustainable gardening practices.
