Construction Update, March 2017
Construction Update, 3/7/17
Construction on Norrie Point Environmental Center’s roof and ceiling is completed, and the solar panels are getting hooked up. As the exhibits are getting pieced back together, visitors are welcome to visit. Look out for future educational and recreational programming, both inside and around the Center.
Norrie Point Under Construction
Exhibits at the Norrie Point Environmental Center are currently closed while the building is under construction. Construction work on rebuilding the roof and ceilings is ongoing at Norrie Point Environmental Center. There will be limited access to the building until late fall. Although the interpretive information and tanks with live fish and turtles have been moved, the fishing deck are usually open to the public. Please call ahead for more information on weekdays.
From the deck, visitors can bird watch, fish, and have picnics. It seems like you can’t walk outside of Norrie Point without seeing at least one great blue heron stalking fish, osprey diving into the river, or bald eagle soaring high above. Norrie Point has educational programs, canoe tours, and fishing programs still running throughout the construction.

Sealing the building envelope is one of the best ways to improve an existing building’s efficiency. Norrie Point is finishing sealing its building envelope by installing a new roof, fixing ceilings, and replacing insulation. In years past, we installed new siding, energy efficient windows, solar panels, and foam insulation to the walls and attic space. Norrie Point Environmental Center is committed to being a great example of environmental awareness in action.
