The City of Los Angeles created the Environmental Learning Center to teach children and adults about sustainable water and solid resources management. The 20,000-square foot facility is the stunning result of completely renovating the Hyperion Treatment Plant's former administration building into a leading center for environmental learning. Sustainable practices and learning experiences were built throughout the LEED Gold facility. Admission and parking are complimentary, but advance reservations are required. When you visit, look for the following features that we have incorporated to demonstrate and teach sustainable resource management: * A first-floor gallery of interpretive exhibits that focus on clean water and watershed protection. * A second-floor gallery that discusses solid resources and shows how Los Angeles is on the Road to Zero Waste. * A green roof that is irrigated with recycled water, skylights that provide natural light to the second floor, photovoltaic panels that generate electricity, wind turbine, solar water heater, and a view deck to observe the treatment processes at Learning Center at Hyperion and Santa Monica Bay. * A terraced wetland fed with recycled water and stocked with mosquito fish. * A walkway to the entrance made of permeable pavers, a stream and drought-tolerant landscaping. * An 87-seat auditorium and learning lab classroom. * Other sustainable features, such as chilled-beam air conditioning, waterless urinals, low VOC (volatile organic compound) paint, and smart controls for irrigation.
