Touring the Center

The Lyle Center offers tours during weekdaysThe Lyle Center is designed to demonstrate the integration of sustainable systems that meet the needs of any community. Thousands of people tour the Center annually, learning about energy-efficient building design, energy production, food, water and waste systems, ecological restoration and sustainable community processes.

Individuals and small groups are welcome to visit the Center during business hours and informally explore the property. A self-guided tour is available in the Center's main office.

Classes and other large groups may be able to arrange a guided tour by Center staff, however our budget prevents us from honoring all requests. Phone 909.869.5155 or email for more information, or to explore the possibility of scheduling a tour.
