Dear Mr. Schmidt,
I am in 5th grade. I am going a green project for my class. I’m doing the report oon the green design of museums. Do you think you could give me some ideas on that???



Dear Katie,

Thank you so much for your email, your project sounds very exciting.  One great example of a green, sustainably designed museum is right here in our backyard, it is the California Academy of Sciences.

The building has many green features and exhibits, one of the most interesting is the “living roof”  A living roof is more than just a roof top garden, it is a complete, miniature ecosystem and habitat on your roof!  Did you know that you can have a living roof on almost any building, not just museums?  Green Roofs for Healthy Cities is an organization that helps communities become aware of, install and maintain living roofs in cities around the world.  I hope this helps you on your project, good luck!
