The Living Roof

Stop and smell the wildflowers during a visit to the Academy's living roof, a 2.5 acre expanse of native California plants. Part of the museum's green building strategy, the roof provides superior insulation, prevents storm water runoff, reduces the urban heat island effect, and creates new habitat for native birds, butterflies, and other beneficial insects.
