trinity river audubon center in south dallas. besides being a great opportunity to get to know the beautiful women i work with, it was a fantastic learning experience to see the center. this is the very first LEED-certified project by the dallas park & recreation department. not only do they have solar panels, floors made of local bamboo, walkways of recycled tires and insulation made from discarded denim, but the building itself was designed so that when you see it from above, it looks like a bird! it was truly an eye-opening adventure in the world of environmentally-conscious design. what a wonderful way to spend a beautiful day in dallas! if you live here or ever visit here, this is really something to see that might otherwise not be on your radar.
