Tree Pittsburgh's Office & Nursery Tour
Date: September 11, 2018
Time: 1:00pm-3:30pm
Cost: $25
Location: Registration Desk, David L Lawrence Convention Center

Tree Pittsburgh is an environmental non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing Pittsburgh's vitality by restoring and protecting the urban forest through tree maintenance, planting, education and advocacy. Just in time for the Expo, the organization will have recently opened its new education center and nursery on five acres of land on a former steel mill site along the Allegheny River. The project – which is pursing LEED Platinum and Zero Energy certifications – employs modular construction as a way to reduce construction waste, achieve a tight building envelope, and maintain adaptability, as well as a solar array placed on the roof to off-set energy demand. Members of the project team will walk us through a tour of the building, highlighting all its green features. As a special bonus, we’ll also get to tour its Heritage Nursery, where Tree Pittsburgh grows tens of thousands of trees from seed in an effort to increase biodiversity and genetic diversity for a more resilient forest.

*The tour is subject to minimum occupancy requirements.
