As part of Team Green Adventures' "Engage Green" series, Socket presents “Walking Tour of Metro’s Center of Responsible Energy (CORE) & West Riverfront Park”. Join us for an insider tour of two of the city’s sustainability gems. Visit the Department of General Services’ energy control center, where the energy manager will explain the city’s automated systems to control HVAC, temperature, lighting, and water for nearly 100 city buildings. Then, after a short, 0.5 mile walk to West Riverfront Park, participants will be rewarded by a tour of the sustainability features of this iconic green space. From geothermal heating and cooling to more than a mile of trails to a tree tour with 36 species, learn how this park was built with sustainability in mind. A team member from site design firm Hawkins Partners will be leading the tour.
Wednesday, August 2nd, 6-7:15pm
Meet at Howard Office Building (700 2nd Ave. South 37210) at 6pm.
