Audubon President’s Green Home Open House on Sunday, July 22

Jamestown, NY – It’s been a long process, but the “green” home that Jamestown Audubon President Ruth Lundin and her husband Paul built is ready to be occupied.

To celebrate, they are having an open house on Sunday afternoon, July 22, 1-3 pm.

This is an opportunity for those who have been following the construction of this unique home to see it completed.  It has been built with many green systems and materials which will be showcased and explained during the open house.

The house features many re-used materials, straw bale insulation, radiant heating, a “living” roof, and solar energy for heat and electricity. Low V-factor paints, glues and finishes were used and local materials were sourced whenever possible.

Visitors will want to note the countertops, light fixtures, window seats and much more.  Or they are welcome to just sit on the patio and enjoy the view that inspired this low impact house. 

Note that the first floor is handicapped accessible.

Reservations are appreciated by Thursday, July 19, by calling (716) 569-2345, emailing info@jamestownaudubon.org, or using the on-line form at http://jamestownaudubon.org. After that date, call to check on available space. When you register, you will receive directions to the house.

A donation of $5 for the Audubon Center and Sanctuary is appreciated.

For details on this and all Audubon Center and Sanctuary programs, call (716) 569-2345 or visit http://jamestownaudubon.org.

Jamestown Audubon is celebrating 55 years strong, continuing to share the founders’ belief that preserving the natural world is at the core of our happiness and health.
