An 8,000 sq. ft. ‘Living Building’ which incorporates adaptive reuse of existing structures, exterior walls made of plants that support pollinators & provide stunning color throughout the year, a water feature which uses rainwater collected from the building & constructed wetland cells that demonstrate how wetlands cleanse & filter water

Picnic area with permeable walkways & natural shading

Outdoor classroom (2,800 sq. ft.) & multi-purpose building (9,000 sq. ft.) to be available for community use

Coming to the Headwaters will be a unique way to experience the beauty of the restored ecosystem and the importance of environmental conservation.



Throughout the year a programming for both youth and adult audiences will be offered. A variety of different topics including environmental conservation, gardening, art, and health and wellness will be covered.



At the Headwaters, volunteers will have the opportunity get involved with the local environment, while also getting to meet new people and learn new things.



Memberships will allow the community to directly contribute to this important project and benefit the Headwaters ecosystem for generations to come, while also enjoying the environment throughout the year with a number of perks.
