2014 GREEN BUILDINGS OPEN HOUSE
GREEN DOGHOUSE CHALLENGE
The Green Buildings Open House Tour is an annual event held the first weekend in October which draws hundreds of participants from around Tompkins County, the region, and even neighboring states. In any given year, more than 20 sites have been highlighted, ranging from commercial to residential, natural building to LEED-certified. See what sites are open each day and plan your itinerary!

This year, in conjunction with the SPCA of Tompkins County, the first animal shelter in the nation to receive LEED Silver certification, we’re bringing the green to our four-legged friends, with a challenge to build the ‘greenest’ doghouse in Tompkins County. Join us at the kick off event on Friday, Oct 3rd at 7pm at the SPCA of Tompkins County where we will auction off the doghouses, hear from passionate leaders, tour the LEED Silver facility, and enjoy delicious local food and beverages.

All proceeds will benefit the Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County and the SPCA of Tompkins County.
