On Monday of this week, your lovely interns took a trip to Louisville, KY to visit the University of Louisville’s Office of Sustainability. As the resident LEED intern for the Office of Sustainability, I enjoyed walking around campus, listening to tales of LEED building certification and green building construction. Our guides told us humorous stories about unidentified solar panels and building mishaps. I learned that currently U of L is home to six LEED buildings: 3 Gold certified and 3 Silver certified. While this part of the trip to Louisville was fun and informative, my favorite part of the trip was our stop at Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest.
