New exhibit teaches fundamentals of shelters

Learn about the functions of shelters, including how animals and humans adapted to various environments, through a new exhibit at The N.C. Arboretum.

Opening September 24, Sustainable Shelter explores biodiversity, human and animal architecture, ecosystems, and energy and water conservation, all from the perspective of the “home.”  

Sustainable Shelter investigates the ways that human dwellings extract, use, and discard energy, water, and other precious natural resources.

Sustainable Shelter will be on display at arboretum through Jan. 2. The exhibition will be open to the public during regular Baker Exhibit Center hours, 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily. Exhibit admission is in addition to the standard parking fee ($8 per personal vehicle), and is $3 for adults and $2 for students age 18 and under.
