Elmhurst College and Elmhurst Cool Cities Coalition
Elmhurst College is a leader in sustainability initiatives in Elmhurst. Join us for a free tour of the College’s LEED-certified West Hall residence hall and the surrounding grounds.
Led by Bruce Mather, Elmhurst College’s executive director of facilities management, this one-hour tour will highlight eco-friendly aspects of West Hall and its surroundings.
West Hall features a solar thermal heating system, eco-friendly building materials and many energy conservation features both in the living spaces and the overall building infrastructure.
The area surrounding West Hall features permeable pavers in the parking lot; native and woodland gardens; and an underground cistern/stormwater management system.
The Elmhurst College Eco-Tour will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 10. Participants should meet in front of West Hall (west side of the building, facing the parking lot). The public is invited to attend.
