Green Design at Black Rock Forest Consortium

Wednesday, Dec 6, 2006

Based on hands-on experience, Black Rock's Operations Manager will discuss the costs, benefits and maintenance of green building and their relation to building design and site selection.

The Black Rock Forest Consortium is a 3,800 acre natural area in the Hudson Highlands on the west bank of the Hudson River, 50 miles north of New York City. It is a prime example of the natural ecosystem which once covered the region with forests, ponds, brooks, wetlands and great biological diversity. Established in 1928 as a research and demonstration site, the forest was acquired in 1989 from Harvard University by the not-for-profit Black Rock Forest Preserve, which set the region aside as a natural area for perpetuity.
