A butterfly gardening class is held at the Lost Valley Visitor Center in Ringwood Wednesday, March 19, 2014. The center received a gold certification in 2011. Among the visitor center's green features are permeable pavers and rain gardens to help with storm water management, large windows to capture more natural daylight, motion sensor-activated lights to save electricity and the carpeting and the glass terrazzo floor in the main lobby made of recycled materials.
