Sustainability at North Mountain Park

Since 1996, when the community of Ashland decided to save an old farmhouse and convert it into a Nature Center, this site has been a model for sustainable living and resource conservation. By modeling sustainability practices, offering educational programs, interpretive displays, and community events such as Earth Day, the North Mountain Park Nature Center provides information and inspiration for people seeking to be better stewards of our wonderful planet. Many sustainable living concepts are exemplified at the North Mountain Park Nature Center and its surrounding grounds. Community members who wish to incorporate sustainable living concepts into their own homes (Earth-friendly cleaning recipes) [PDF format] and Cleaning Recipe Ingredient List [PDF format] Note: Our next Natural Cleaning Products class will take place on Wednesday, November 16 at 1:30pm), gardens and lifestyles will find ideas pertaining to green building, energy efficiency, rainwater harvesting (PDF format), organic gardening practices, solar energy and water conservation, and more.

Check out the Green Living Guide (PDF format) and learn ways to help the environment. You are invited to use this downloadable brochure to take a self-guided tour (PDF format) of North Mountain Park to get some great ideas! The Nature Center hopes to inform and inspire people about things they can do to live more sustainably, with examples demonstrated on-site at North Mountain Park Nature Center and its surrounding grounds. The items described in this brochure, can be seen at the park (see location map - PDF format). You are also encouraged to send us your Green Living suggestions via email.
