Mother Lode staff recently visited the new Exhibit about Climate change in California and building green at the California Academy of Sciences.
Mother Lode River Center currently is in the process of integrating a new curriculum on Sustainable Practices. This trip to the museum was a perfect way for our staff to get better insight and more learning tools.
The Exhibit featured:
-Calculating your own carbon footprint (from what you eat to how you live your day to day life)
-The future effects of the change in climate on California (from carbon emissions)
-Examples of building green
-Techniques to harness green energy
-And too much more for myself to explain, Go see it yourself!
The California Academy of Sciences also includes a full aquarium, IMAX style Solarium, an Eco bubble that replicates Borneo and Madagascar rain forest zones, and the Living Green Rooftop!
