NatureMaker is in the works again to collaborate with Gondwana Das Praehistorium to help bring the past into the present. In 2008, NatureMaker installed three large cedar, cypress, and redwood trees for Gondwana. Currently, the museum is in the process of expanding by adding new shows and exhibits and NatureMaker is scheduled to help with that process. The new phase of the museum is scheduled to open in the summer of 2012. Gondwana Das Praehistorium is dedicated to preserving and recreating the natural history of our earth. NatureMaker’s belief in using sustainable design and resources to create Steel Art Trees makes working with Gondwana a great match.
Sustainable design is built into every NatureMaker tree. Every tree is durable, made up of recycled parts, painted with non-toxic low VOC paints and the shipping and handling is done in a sustainable way. The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) established the LEED rating system to provide the construction and manufacturing industries with planet-friendly performance and building standards. NatureMaker’s Steel Art Trees meet the LEED Rating System Standards in multiple categories, including: Water Efficiency, Recycled Content, Rapidly Renewable and Regional Materials.
Mother Earth cannot go back to the way she was millions of years ago, but NatureMaker is proud to be a part of recreating what that might have looked like and to contribute to preserving our planet.
