The South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo), the only natural history museum on the South Fork of Long Island, will continue its commitment to educate people about conserving our environment with a series of upcoming workshops focusing on Green Architecture. Hosted by Bill and Ben Chaleff of Chaleff & Roger Architects in Water Mill, the three-part illustrated workshops will address questions, concerns, and discuss other details surrounding the theory of Green Architecture, and the ways in which our community can reduce its carbon footprint and integrate eco-friendly products into their daily lives. The workshops will begin at 7:30 p.m., and will be held on three consecutive Thursdays – July 9, 16, and 23.

“To truly understand the issue of Green Architecture, we must look for better options than those we commonly call upon,” says Bill Chaleff.

“It is our hope that those who participate in this workshop will gain a deeper understanding of how we can all help to reshape our built environment, which is, after all, the armature for our social and cultural landscapes, and re-establish a healthy relationship with our natural landscape,” he added.

The workshop, which will focus on ways to make the East End’s built environment more sustainable, will allow ample time for questions and a discussion.
