Indian Creek Nature Center outside Cedar Rapids, Iowa breaks ground, pursuing Full Living certification

Indian Creek Nature Center rests snugly along the shore of Indian Creek just before it meets the Cedar River. In this quiet corner of Iowa you’ll find the site of a future Living Building. Two years ago, Jean Wiedenheft, Land Stewardship Director at the Center, attended a Rotary meeting in Cedar Rapids where Liz Christiansen, director of the University of Iowa’s Sustainability Office, shared a presentation on Net Zero Energy Building Certification starting them on the path toward a restorative future. http://living-future.org/news/facilitating-engagement-nature-through-living-building-challenge
