Community leadership in sustainability is paramount at the Tallahassee Museum. We invite you to see the ways our team works every day to keep the Museum and its surroundings beautiful.
Our Preschool, community, public, and camp programs use many re-purposed items in crafting and building. Purchased items are bought with the greatest of care and consider human and environmental impacts.
The Tallahassee Museum partners with the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch® Program to promote sustainable seafood messaging. As a Conservation Partner we do this through our public programs, community outreach events, exhibits, and animal feeding programs.
Our facilities team has incorporated LED lighting into 90 % of the buildings on the site, which lowers our in energy usage.
We are on board with green infrastructure! The Museum is surrounded by a chain lake system which is part of the Lake Munson watershed. We are on top of making sure that stormwater coming from the Museum has a chance to permeate into the soil and filter naturally into the ground instead of running directly into the surrounding lakes. Thanks to our incredible team of green infrastructure volunteers, we are able to share the knowledge of the importance of water protection at our site! Check out the ways you can incorporate these naturally wonderful methods into your home landscape!
