Audubon Blair Center at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary by RJ WileyOver the weekend, Audubon of Florida was proud to announce that their own Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary near Naples, Florida has completed installation of Solar Panels on the roof of the Blair Center. With a generous donation from REC Solar, who donated the panels and installation work, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary will now save around 400 pounds of carbon dioxide pollution from entering the atmosphere every two weeks.

The panels will go a long way in helping prevent CO2 from entering the atmosphere and will be a great tool to teach visitors about the benefits of renewable energy and conservation. National Audubon Society President David Yarnold was on hand for the official unveiling.

  1. Very cool. I’m sure it’s awesome for the swamp that they’re using a renewable resource and awesome PR for both companies involved. Good hustle team!
