Audubon Center at Debs Park

Los Angeles, California
Information +

The award-winning Audubon Center at Debs Park–the first LEED v2 Platinum building in the United States–is the first of hundreds of urban nature centers planned by the National Audubon Society. The Center models sustainable systems for professionals as well as the community and provides tools for visitors to understand and enjoy nature. The building complements the landscape, blending into the environment and acting as a staging area for activities in the courtyards, Children’s Garden, and trails. The main courtyard, the heart of the Center, is used for teaching, nature trail orientation, and social events.
