Green Screen and Sustainability Education at the Jay Heritage Center
The Jay Heritage Center's Green Screen is an important part of its "Stewardship through Smart Choices" energy education program. The interactive touch screen in the 1838 Jay Mansion details the sustainable measures undertaken during the restoration and preservation of this National Historic Landmark home and grounds of the Jay family.
Visitors to the site and visitors to an upcoming weblink will be able to see a checklist of thoughtful and responsible steps taken by the JHC and compare them with the LEED system; this is a simple and effective way to demonstrate where historic preservation and this prevalent environmental coding system are compatible or incompatible in real practice.
Through this innovative approach, the JHC hopes to serve as a valuable model and authoritative resource for other institutions, museums, schools, government entities as well as individual homeowners as they plan to incorporate green design features into their own buildings.
