The grand opening of Nature House celebrates a milestone event in Reston’s eco-history, says Hunter Mill District Supervisor Catherine Hudgins. The event is Saturday, Nov. 21, 1 to 5 p.m., 11450 Glade Drive, Reston, hosted by Reston Association and the Friends of Reston.

Set in the 72-acre Walker Nature Education Center, Nature House has been LEED Gold certified by the U.S. Green Building Council because of its environmentally friendly, sustainable design. It is the first LEED Gold building in the Hunter Mill District and one of only 17 new LEED Gold certified buildings in Virginia.

Nature House is open year-round as a hub for environmental learning and appreciation in Reston, teaching people of all ages about green spaces and how to care for the environment. Key environmental areas include: energy savings; water efficiency; CO2 emissions reductions; improved indoor environmental quality; and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

Nature House fulfills a part of the vision of the original 1964 Master Plan of Reston to have a fully functioning nature center.
