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.
Also, keep a look out for Help Desk pop-ups at our weekly Farmers’ Markets and other local community events.
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.
