SITES Community Update: December Meeting

Wednesday, December 9, 2020 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm ET

Join the enterprising team behind the restoration of this unique SITES Platinum certified project! Destroyed by Hurricane Ivan in 2004, restoration of The Lodge at Gulf State Park, a hotel, ballroom, conference center, restaurant, and educational facility, was financed with BP restoration funds following its 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The BP funds allowed nearly half of Alabama’s funds to be used for recreation, with most of the rest dedicated to “restore and conserve habitat,” “restore water quality,” and “replenish and protect living coastal and marine resources.” This project achieved LEED Gold, SITES Platinum, and Fortified Commercial certifications.
