New Green Space Honors Native American Heritage

July 11, 2013

Approved for a Green Fund grant in Fall 2012, the Lenape Botanical Garden came into full bloom in May. During a “soft opening” on Alumni Weekend, the project sponsors, alumni, and members of the Lenape Nation gathered to celebrate this new green space on campus. Elements of the garden design, as well as the species of plants used in this space at the Greenfield Intercultural Center, all relate to the themes and environment embraced by Native Americans.  Read more in an article in the Penn Current, and on the GIC website.


There are currently 6 LEED Certified buildings on the University of Pennsylvania’s Philadelphia campus.
