Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter: A Model of Sustainability

These days, most of us feel that it’s our shared responsibility to support sustainable/green ideas, products, and businesses. Two local ideal examples of such progressive thinking are the Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter, and the town of Park City, which is the state’s first LEED-certified neighborhood development and has set a goal of using 100% renewable electricity by 2032. Newpark Resort is also working diligently to increase sustainability in 2019 and beyond, with an annual financial commitment to Swaner and as part of Recycle Utah’s Green Business Program.

Our location at Swaner’s perimeter allows our guests to easily access this 1,200-acre combination of wildlife/nature preserve, miles of trails, and a 10,000-square-foot, cutting edge, LEED platinum-certified environmental museum and education center. With its focus on wetland restoration, wildlife protection, and ecosystem preservation, Swaner provides a safe habitat for an abundant array of wildlife and around 90 species of birds. Visitors can participate in a variety of activities, such as hiking and snowshoeing, in addition to various traveling exhibits. To make a date for your visit to Swaner and Park City, call us at (877) 649-3600, and be sure to ask about discounts for military, first responders, repeat guests, and AAA members.
