The City of Berkeley’s Shorebird Park Nature Center is the first municipal strawbale building in the United States. It has a solar hot water radiant system to provide heating year-round in the cool marina climate, and a solar photovoltaic electrical system to power the aquariums, computers, lighting and other equipment.   Our  Straw Bale building  is  the Nature/Visitors Center and Office. Here you'll find  a 50 gallon salt tank, a 30 gallon fresh water tank and displays on Marine mammals and birds.The building itself is a display on green building.  The Visitors' Center provides information to visitors concerning all areas of recreation and marine conservation and education.  We do group tours which include watching a video on the process of building this building.
Our  phone number is 510- 981-6720,and  the  fax is 510 981-6725
Schools and/ or teachers who would like more information should contact the center's program coordinator Anthony DeCicco.  This is also the office for the Adventure Playground, and we do the Shoreline cleanups year round. We  need volunteers for our Bay Interpretive training program to help with our education programs during the school year. [more...]
