With its innovative use of efficient, recycled, and rapidly renewable materials, the Visitor Center has set a new, environmentally friendly standard for construction in the California desert. The 8,200-square-foot building uses 40% less energy than permitted under already stringent City building codes. Drought tolerant landscaping and efficient fixtures allow the Center to use 50% less water than a conventional building. The building was first in the Coachella Valley to earn LEED Silver Certification.
