    The Vollmer Visitor Center at Cylburn Arboretum is Now Open

    A quiet presence in the landscape, the new 10,000 square-foot Vollmer Center is sited to take advantage of the views and the rolling landscape. The visitor center provides an orientation point for visitors to the Cylburn Arboretum as well as a 250 seat multipurpose space for lectures and events. Emphasizing the use of sustainable techniques, the facility includes an “extensive” green roof over half of the building, geothermal heating and cooling, composting toilets, a rain screen, natural ventilation and many sustainable materials.
