HOTLINE & HELP DESK

The Information Desk

The Ecology Center provides information on a wide range of environmental issues from toxics to composting to activism. We are available to answer questions over the phone, via e-mail, or on a walk-in basis. Our staff handles questions on a wide range of issues. If we are unable to answer a question ourselves, we can usually make a referral.
