The Green Building Demonstration Pavilion, with its 600 square-foot green roof, is a public use space that forms the centerpiece for the Oktibbeha County Heritage Museum’s rain garden. Over five years, more than 200 undergraduate- and graduate-level landscape architecture, landscape contracting, architecture, art, building science and graphic design students designed and built the museum’s green infrastructure and sustainable building technologies. The garden project has earned several awards, most recently winning the 2015 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 4’s Rain Catcher Award in the neighborhood/community-level.
