Trexler Environmental Center is Lehigh County’s first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified building. Located in the Central Range of the Trexler Nature Preserve, it houses a county park office, a satellite office for the State Bureau of Forestry, a community room for environmental education and restrooms for trail users. Everything about the Environmental Center is “green” from its vegetative roof with solar panels to the recycled concrete cinder blocks to the toilets, which use rainwater to flush. The building is also bird-friendly; the windows are tilted so birds don’t crash into them.
