Forest Service Building LEED Certified

MCKENZIE BRIDGE, Ore. — The forest service’s new ranger station building on the McKenzie River just received a big honor Thursday.

It’s now LEED certified. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

Rangers say supervising staff worked hard to make sure the new addition to the station was as energy efficient and environmentally friendly as possible–something that truly aligns with their line of work and principles.

“To have a building that meets that certification shows we’re as responsible with our facilities as we are with managing resources for the public,” said Terry Baker, McKenzie River District Ranger.

From low-maintenance landscaping to reclaimed wood in the conference room, the new building is as green as it is beautiful.
