Solar Array at the Hurstville Center

The Hurstville Interpretive Center is going solar and we want you to join us. Over 25 years, our solar panels could offset almost 2,000,000 pounds of CO2 emissions. That is equivalent to planting 21,366 trees! This solar project fits our mission and we are excited to be moving down a path of renewable energy!

Donations made on October 22 & 23 will be matched up to $2,500 thanks to an anonymous donor!

Buy a Brick! Donations of $100 or more for a 4"x8" engraved brick and $200 or more for an 8"x8" engraved brick. Bricks will be laid around an information kiosk adjacent to the solar array. 

Buy a Panel! Donations of $500 or more will help us purchase a panel. By purchasing a panel for the Hurstville Center, you will be helping to personally offset up to 25,000 pounds of CO2 emissions. Panel Donors will be recognized on a sign on the kiosk.

Maquoketa-Hurstville Trail
