The Frick Environmental Center is a welcome facility, education hub, and gateway to Frick Park. Free and open to all, this cutting-edge facility enhances visitor experience and inspires learners to discover one of Pittsburgh’s largest parks. The Frick Environmental Center provides educational experiences for families, students, and learners of all ages and serves as the classroom base for programming that extends into the surrounding park woodlands, streams, meadows, and trails. The tour will focus on the seven petals of the Living Building Challenge and the technologies and design choices that allowed the environmental center building to achieve living building status, including being net-zero energy and net-zero water.

Special Notes: If weather permits, this tour will include a nature hike. Please dress appropriately.
