From 2003 to 2018, our offices were located in an office building off Rockside Road, but as the organization expanded, so did our need for space, as well as a need for us to be in our element.
As of June 2019, we officially moved our offices (still in Parma) into a house we successfully retrofitted into an office. With amazing support provided by The Cleveland Foundation and ArcelorMittal, we were able to not only make it a working/functional office, but such support provided the opportunity to install a geothermal heating and cooling system and a 16-panel solar array. Of course we also built a series of rain gardens, installed rain barrels, and are working to restore the forest understory.
The office resides on 12-acres surrounded with over ½ mile of West Creek, critical stream-side forests and floodplains. This property is now integrated into the boundaries of the West Creek Reservation and will be a critical connection on the West Creek Greenway, linking to Broadview Road and the Seven Hills section of the trail.
We are sincerely appreciative of the support provided by The Cleveland Foundation and ArcelorMittal enabling us to create a facility not only functional for our conservation operations, but also as a facility with model green energy and storm water control practices.
