EcoCenter Wishlist

Thanks to the City of SF's Virtual Warehouse and UCSF's Surplus Warehouse, we have very useful furniture for the EC's office! Also, much gratitude to the Aquarium of the Bay for donating funds to purchasing 50 chairs. Thanks to volunteers from the Meritus Fund alumni, the office was transformed into a more organized space.

If you're wondering what else we need at the EcoCenter, firstly, we definitely need program partners who want to bring programming, educational classes, or funding to the EcoCenter. We're planning now for EcoCenter programming starting in the spring of 2011. As for physical contributions to the EcoCenter to help us do the education and community engagement we want to do, check out our wishlist:

- Solar panels for solar thermal radiant heating: ~$4k
- On-demand hot water heaters (3)
- Pathway lighting and spotlights on building
- MicroEye microscope with video capabilities: ~$3.5K
- SmartBoard
- Webcamera for living roof
- Microscopes with rolling cart (20)
- Laptops (5)
- Flip cameras (5)
- Bird-safe wind turbine
