We’re building a community-driven science center and we want your help!

The Sanctuary for Independent Media is gearing up to revamp a long-abandoned building into the NATURE Lab Environmental Education Center! We are embarking on a community-led design process to ensure that the new center’s design and programming reflects the needs of the North Troy community.

Let your ideas be heard at our Community Design Think Tank and help shape this new space with visiting architect Cameron Toler, the Uptown Summer 2018 youth students, and other community members.

We need your support to grow NATURE Lab!! 
Please share and invite your friends, family, and neighbors!
