Green Tour

Annually, WREC and our partners host a green practices tour highlighting projects your neighbors completed to improve water quality and habitat within the community.

2014 Green Tour: 9/2 @ 5:30 pm

Join us on Tuesday, September 2nd for the 2014 green tour! The tour will depart from the Imagination Station parking lot (600 N 4th St, Lafayette) by bus at 5:3o pm. Parking is available for tour participants in the Imagination Station parking lot. Registration for the bus tour is requested. Register now using this link!

The bus tour will include four stops and FREE dinner between 5:30 and 8:00 pm. Tour stops highlight residential installations of urban green practices.
