The Sustainability Treehouse is a living education center that not only provides information but also immerses visitors in the concept of sustainability. Between the local timber used to build the structure, the rainwater recovery system, and the wind- and solar-generated energy, the Sustainability Treehouse is not just a museum, it’s an adventure. Other sustainability efforts at the Summit Bechtel Reserve include:

  • Reutilization of gray water for flushing
  • Composting toilets and low-flow fixtures
  • Constructed wetlands to filter waste water on-site
  • Stream restoration
  • Recycling used cooking oil for green fuel
  • Geothermal heat exchange system
