W.S. Cumby recently completed the renovation and expansion of The Watershed Center for the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association in Pennington, New Jersey. The Watershed Center features exhibits, classrooms, laboratories, learning centers, a gift shop, boardroom and renovated offices for staff. Focused on environmental advocacy, science and education, The Watershed Center works with schools to implement the “Next Generation Science Standards” by engaging students in identifying and addressing environmental challenges in the region.

This state-of-the-art nature center, which received LEED Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, is anticipated to generate more than 85 percent of renewable energy from on-site resources. Some of The Watershed Center’s sustainable design features include geothermal heating and cooling, green roofs, photovoltaic panels, a solar hot water heating system, day lighting, rainwater harvesting and rain gardens.
