The St. Charles Park District hired Prairie Forge Group to construct their environmental education center, containing an exhibit area, two multi-purpose rooms, a lobby gathering space, staff offices and work space as well as small program rooms. A roof garden over the main entrance canopy as well as the use of natural stone, wood and glass were key parts in the LEED silver certification that this project was awarded.
