Steps to Sustainability: A Path to Renewable Energy

Hear about the Montshire's journey to becoming an environmentally sustainable Museum and learn more about the different aspects of renewable energy

In mid-October, the Montshire Museum of Science installed a new wood pellet boiler system as part of ongoing efforts to achieve more environmentally sustainable operations at the Museum. To celebrate this move towards building a greener organization, the Montshire is offering a series of special events that will share the Museum’s experience and provide information from experts on renewable energy.

“Steps to Sustainability: A Path to Renewable Energy” is a panel presentation with representatives from the Northern Forest Center in Concord, NH, Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation, and Lyme Green Heat. Using the Montshire’s installation process as a starting point, the guest speakers will expand on the role of local biomass in reducing our region’s carbon footprint and offer examples of what can be done to support such efforts. The evening will end with a tour of the wood pellet boiler.
